In the three years since Congress passed the Foreign Aid Transparency and Accountability Act of 2016 (FATAA), the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) has made great strides in implementing the law's provisions. The Act created guidelines related to monitoring and evaluation for U.S. Departments and Agencies that invest foreign-assistance resources, and required them to publish quarterly financial and descriptive data on their programs, to create transparency on where they are directing funds and if programs are meeting their goals. USAID was instrumental in providing input into the draft legislation that became the FATAA, and already had in place many of the requirements included in the enacted law.

Remarks

What an important week in the history of our movement. So, as you all know, tomorrow marks the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. That iconic moment where young men and young women scaled that monstrosity and boldly asserted their freedom. But my friends, as special as that moment was, in all honesty, that's not why I'm here. That's not what I'm here to commemorate. Let me explain. So, 25 years ago -- five years ago, we were approaching the 25th anniversary of the wall's dismantling. I was serving as President of the International Republican Institute, and it dawned on me, as you have said, that many of my young staff weren't even old enough to remember the wall, let alone appreciate the significance of it's toppling. And so, I went to see General Brent Scowcroft, who was on the board of directors of IRI and had served as George H. W. Bush's national security adviser. And I asked him what it was that I should tell today's young people about those days and why those days matter. I'll never forget, he said very simply, "Tell him it wasn't easy. Tell them it was often in doubt."

U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) Deputy Administrator Bonnie Glick traveled to Vietnam from October 30 to November 2, 2019. While in Hanoi, the Deputy Administrator met with Ministry of Health officials, including Vice Minister Truong Quoc Cuong, to discuss the country's national HIV response. The Deputy Administrator commended the Government of Vietnam on its notable progress transitioning the national HIV response to domestic financing-an effort that USAID is supporting under the U.S. President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief. In 2018, Vietnam achieved a key benchmark in this transition-assuming responsibility for funding, procuring and delivering anti-retroviral (ARV) drugs to one-third of all HIV patients in the country. The Vietnamese Government is on track to be able to finance 75 percent of all ARVs provided through the national health insurance system by next year.
