The project funded the repair and maintenance of units 1­4 at the Jamshoro Thermal Power Station located near the city of Hyderabad in Sindh. The project aimed to regain the power generation capacity that had been lost over the years due to the aging of the equipment and deferred maintenance at the station.

Through this project, USAID is supporting Government of Pakistan for the repair and rehabilitation of Muzaffargarh Thermal Power Station (MTPS) located in Punjab Province. 500 MW of generation capacity has been restored through rehabilitation efforts, exceeding the original target of 475 MW.

USAID is supporting the Government of Pakistan's Water and Power Development Authority by rehabilitating the Tarbela Hydroelectric Power Station, located in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Province.

Through this project, USAID funds the repairs and maintenance work at the Guddu Power Station in northern Sindh. Upon completion, the project will increase the station's generation capacity by at least 75 megawatts­­ enough power to supply electricity to about 100,000 households.

Through this project, USAID funds the construction of the Satpara Dam, a multipurpose water and power facility at the edge of the Skardu City in Gilgit­Baltistan near the border with China and India.

The Demographic Health Survey Project supports the implementation of the Pakistan Demographic and Health Survey (DHS) 2017-18. This survey provides high-quality data and analysis to support evidence-based health policy making and programming in Pakistan. The survey is similar to ones funded by the U.S. Government in 85 countries over the last 27 years. A previous Pakistan DHS supported by USAID was released in 2012-2013, and it focused on providing data about the status of key maternal and child health and family planning indicators in the country.

In order to complement investments in building management and technical capacity to deliver quality health services, USAID also supports targeted infrastructure improvement. USAID's support includes minor renovations, facility expansions, and new construction designed to be very energy efficient and to incorporate green-building technology. The Jacobabad Institute of Medical Sciences (JIMS) Project supports the construction of a new 150 bed hospital in Jacobabad, a city in one of the poorest areas of Pakistan in northern Sindh province.

USAID's Maternal and Child Health (MCH) Program is improving women's and children's health by increasing access, availability, and utilization of key health services, as well as strengthening the health system.

The project constructs on­farm irrigation system on 15,500 acres of land downstream from the Satpara Dam in Gilgit­ Baltistan to provide better supply of irrigation water and therefore increase the availability of fodder and productivity of the region's high­value fruit and vegetable crops. 

The Pakistan-U.S. Science and Technology Cooperation Program is increasing cooperation in science, technology, engineering, and education for mutual benefit and peaceful purposes in both the countries.
