About Southern Africa Regional

While Southern Africa has seen significant economic growth, the number of people living in poverty has grown over the last two decades. This region has some of the highest levels of income inequality in the world. Since 1995, USAID has maintained a program in Southern Africa that addresses the changing development challenges of the sub-region. Our programs increase trade and strengthens regional economic ties, address the HIV/AIDS crisis, mitigate food insecurity and support democratic processes. Our regional program is headquartered in Pretoria, South Africa, and complements country-specific programs by addressing cross-border development issues.
