We remain deeply committed to combating hunger and helping the world's more vulnerable people. We will continue to stand shoulder to shoulder with people in their hour of need.

The reality, as we all know, is we will never have enough money as nations to do everything that we would like to do. That means we have to make choices and we have to prioritize. We in the U.S. government choose to prioritize to fight against malaria. Today I am pleased to announce that we will launch new President's Malaria Initiative programs in Cameroon, Cote d'Ivoire, Niger, Sierra Leone, and we will also expand dramatically the PMI program in Burkina Faso.

On-The-Record Briefing

As we help our neighbors in Mexico and the Caribbean, I want to make clear that America is and will remain the world’s leading humanitarian donor.  Whether it’s responding to an earthquake, drought, or conflict, America is committed to standing shoulder to shoulder with people in their hour of need.  It is who we are as Americans. While we respond to immediate crises, America is also providing lifesaving humanitarian assistance to those suffering as the result of famine, food insecurity, drought, and conflict, all of which is driving the greatest movement of people since World War II.  In the face of this unprecedented need, we are continuing to show leadership.

The U.S. President's Malaria Initiative is Expanding. New countries: Cameroon, Cote d'Ivoire, Niger, and Sierra Leone, and expanding existing program in Burkina Faso.

When my agency was created more than five decades ago, 80 percent of the money flowing from America to the developing world, was what we call ODA - traditional development assistance.  That number is now nine percent.  

The great news is that the private sector, along with large scale philanthropy and remittances, are now becoming the most important force in the world.  And so it is only when leaders like the President are able to partner with all of you from the private sector, that we can hope to achieve the goals that we have set forward.

So I think USAID has to look for ways to build the capacity of countries to take on their own needs, help them get those tools, incentivize the reforms that they need to undertake in order to provide for their own people, so that we're always standing shoulder-to-shoulder with those in crisis situations, but also helping them to govern themselves and to lead themselves, because that's-you know, that's human dignity. Everyone wants to take care of themselves, their family, their people, and build toward the future. And I think that's something that we should really be focusing on.
