Humanitarian Assistance

In response to the devastating effects of two back-to-back hurricanes in Nicaragua and the ongoing global COVID-19 pandemic, USAID/BHA has provided over $24 million in disaster response funding since 2020. USAID helped provide life-saving and early recovery water, sanitation, nutrition assistance, child protection, and gender-based violence prevention activities to hard-hit communities through this assistance. USAID is helping address food insecurity in Nicaragua.

Since October 2021, the United States Government has donated 2.2 million safe and effective COVID-19 Pfizer vaccine doses - including pediatric vaccines - to the people of Nicaragua, provided in partnership with COVAX.
