USAID promotes improved rule of law and respect for human rights in Southern Africa. The program works to expand competencies, develop networks of human rights and rule of law defenders, and promote democratic principles and practices throughout the region.
Southern Africa remains the epicenter of the global HIV/AIDS epidemic. An estimated 12.7 million people in the region are HIV infected. RHAP serves a region with a high degree of population mobility, multiple languages, weak health infrastructure and low human capacity development.
Through its environmental programs, USAID enhances the resiliency of critical river basins in Southern Africa, improves capacity to cope with climate change, enhances capacity to conserve biodiversity and combat wildlife trafficking, and advances environmental innovation.
USAID is committed to working with the Independence Elections Commission (IEC) and civil society to ensure elections are successful and put the country back on its democratic track.
