Building on over a decade of partnership and collaboration with the Government of Liberia, USAID/Liberia’s health program seeks to improve the health status of all Liberians, especially the most vulnerable: women, girls, newborns and children under the age of five.  USAID pursues this goal through interventions that support the GOL’s Investment Plan for Building a Resilient Health System in Liberia 2015-2021.

The Liberian education system is emerging from a prolonged and brutally destructive period of civil unrest. Long standing impacts from the war, compounded by the recent school closure due to the Ebola Viral Disease (EVD) outbreak continue to take a toll on the fragile education system. Liberia is significantly behind most other African countries in nearly all education statistics.

Meskipun Indonesia telah mencapai kemajuan luar biasa selama satu dekade terakhir, Tuberkulosis (TB) masih menjadi salah satu dari empat penyebab teratas kematian di negara ini. Selain dari hasil survei prevalensi baru-baru ini yang menunjukkan prevalensi TB jauh lebih tinggi dari yang diperkirakan sebelumnya, peningkatan kasus TB kebal obat (MDR-TB - Multi Drug TB Resistant), temuan kasus TB dan MDR-TB di rumah sakit umum dan swasta masih belum memadai, dan rendahnya notifikasi kasus TB di penyedia pelayanan kesehatan sektor swasta yang menjadikannya sebagai salah satu tantangan signifikan bagi program TB nasional.

Le sud de Madagascar fait face à une sécheresse prolongée, aggravée par les effets du changement climatique et le phénomène El Niño depuis 2013. Les Etats-Unis sont particulièrement préoccupés par le niveau alarmant de l’insécurité alimentaire dans le sud du pays où 900.000 personnes ont besoin d’une aide alimentaire d’urgence. Le gouvernement américain redouble d’effort au moment où les besoins continuent de s’accentuer pendant la saison maigre jusqu’au début de l’année prochaine.

Although Indonesia has made remarkable progress over the last decade, Tuberculosis (TB) remains one of the top four causes of death in the country. In addition to the results of a recent prevalence survey which showed a much higher TB prevalence than previously estimated, an increase in Multi Drug Resistant TB (MDR-TB) cases, inadequate number of TB and MDR-TB case in public and private hospitals, and under-reporting in large hospitals and within the private sector pose significant challenges to the national program.

The southern region of Madagascar has been experiencing a prolonged drought, amplified by the effects of climate change and the El Niño climate phenomenon, since 2013.  The United States is especially concerned about the alarming levels of food insecurity in southern Madagascar where 900,000 people need emergency food assistance. The U.S. government is ramping up its response as needs continue to escalate during the lean season into early next year.
