USAID contributed more than $308 million in additional humanitarian assistance to the people of Afghanistan. This funding will provide food and nutrition assistance, health care, winterization programs, and more for the most vulnerable populations. USAID hosted the first Anti-Corruption Evidence and Learning Week to engage experts in dialogue to combat corruption. This week, around eight million U.S.-donated COVID-19 vaccines arrived in Bosnia, Haiti, the Philippines, Nigeria, and more. USAID helps train health workers and sets up vaccine clinics to ensure communities are well-equipped to administer doses. USAID welcomed Marcela Escobari as Assistant Administrator for the Bureau for Latin America and the Caribbean. She will lead efforts to vaccinate the region and build stronger food, health, and education systems, along with resilient economies.
