Developing an independent, stable, prosperous and democratic Central Asia is vital to regional and global security, and Uzbekistan plays a pivotal role. As Central Asia’s most populous country, with extensive natural resources and transportation links, Uzbekistan is a potential force for economic growth and stability in the region.

Venezuela

Venezuela is experiencing a political and economic crisis – marked by devastating hyperinflation – that has led to severe food and medicine shortages and has driven nearly four million people to flee their once-prosperous country since 2014.

This outflow of vulnerable Venezuelans is straining healthcare, education and other social services in neighboring countries, including Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, and Peru.

West Africa’s tremendous resources—human, agricultural, and mineral—are dogged by political instability, poor governance, environmental degradation, disease, extreme poverty, and lack of private investment opportunities. To combat these challenges, USAID’s West Africa Regional Mission, located in Accra, Ghana, implements innovative regional activities to address trans-boundary issues, as well as activities in countries where there is no USAID mission.

USAID has been the principal U.S. government agency administering the United States’ foreign assistance program in the West Bank and Gaza since 1994.

In 2014 and 2015, conflict escalated throughout Yemen and disrupted the political transition process that followed 2011 protests over lack of economic opportunity, corruption and other issues. As a result of the ongoing civil war, Yemen is suffering from the largest humanitarian crisis in the world.

In Zambia, the last 15 years of strong economic growth raised the average per capita income to over $1,290 and made it a lower-middle-income nation. Zambia’s 28 years of successful multi-party democracy, with two peaceful transitions between ruling political parties, has made the country one of the more stable in sub-Saharan Africa. Despite the recent growth experienced within Zambia, much remains to be done to advance equitable development throughout the population.

Three out of four Zambians still live in extreme poverty and the country faces a myriad of challenges, including limited government capacity to plan and manage national development, low agricultural productivity, and inadequate transportation and energy infrastructure. Zambia is also encumbered by high unemployment, poor education outcomes, a burgeoning youth population, and health crises caused by the HIV/AIDS epidemic, malaria and other diseases, such as cholera and tuberculosis. 

USAID assistance improves the health of Zambians, reduces the incidence and impact of HIV/AIDS, malaria, and other illnesses, increases agriculture-led economic growth, mitigates the effects of climate vulnerability, raises the quality of basic education to increase literacy, and and enhances democratic governance.

Zimbabwe was once one of southern Africa’s most vibrant, productive, and resilient countries. However, over the past decade, a series of political and economic crises have led to a general decline in the standard of living and a breakdown in public health, education, and infrastructure.  

The country has an estimated population of 13.8 million, and about 9 million live in rural areas.  63 percent of all households live in poverty, and 16 percent live in extreme poverty.  As the climate becomes more erratic, farmers have found it harder to produce sufficient yields, contributing to the country’s recurrent food insecurity.

Zimbabwe’s high mortality and illness rates are a result of an under-resourced health delivery system, which is overstretched by the high burden of HIV, TB, malaria, and maternal and childhood illnesses. More than a decade of worsening economic conditions and rising costs has eroded a once vibrant health system. That said, the health sector has produced notable results such as an HIV prevalence rate that declined from 26 percent in 1999 to a current rate of 14 percent. The number of malaria cases has also decreased from 1.8 million in 2006 to less than 392,000 in 2015 – a dramatic 73 percent reduction.

To ensure that its future is in the hands of Zimbabweans, USAID works with its partners to strengthen health services, increase food security, support economic resilience, and promote democratic governance.

Jordan, a country of 9.5 million people, is a voice for moderation, peace and reform in the Middle East. Its central geographic position – bordered by Iraq, Syria, the West Bank, Israel and Saudi Arabia – brings it into constant contact with regional turbulence that affects its political climate and its economy. Calls for greater freedoms across the Arab world have increased domestic pressure on the Government of Jordan to speed the pace of promised reforms to improve economic conditions, strengthen democratic practices and governance, and reduce public corruption.
