Bridging Europe and Eurasia, Ukraine’s geography makes it central to regional stability and security. Today’s Ukraine struggles to unify with its western neighbors by pursuing pro-European reforms while staving off Russian-backed separatists fighting within its eastern borders. In this context, USAID works with leaders throughout Ukraine to build a stable, democratic, and prosperous future. USAID programs primarily focus on good governance, economic growth, strengthened health services and humanitarian assistance. Since 1992, USAID contributed approximately $1.9 billion to Ukraine’s economic and social development.
Today, USAID helps mitigate the effects of conflict in Ukraine’s East and aids Ukraine’s most vulnerable conflict-affected populations as they adapt from conflict and settle in new communities.
USAID development assistance supports more participatory, transparent, and accountable governance; citizen inclusion in democratic, economic, and social reforms; broad-based resilient economic development; enhanced energy security; and improved health services for Ukrainians.
USAID also supports U.S. Presidential Initiatives on Global Health and Global Climate Change.
