Uganda is in the midst of a demographic tsunami—with its population doubling every 16 years. This exacerbates an already high rate of youth unemployment and amplifies pressures on social, natural, and other resources.

USAID began its assistance to Uganda immediately after its independence in 1962, recognizing the country’s potential as a “bread basket” of Africa, with its rich natural resources, and significant rural population. Priorities have evolved over the past five decades, and we remain committed to improving Ugandans’ livelihoods.

Ukraine’s commitment and capacity to progress towards self-reliance is hampered by an ongoing two-front war -- against Russia’s full scale aggression on the one hand, and against its internal legacy of corruption on the other -- with deep consequences for the future of Europe, regional stability, and the United States, for whom a strong and free Europe is a cornerstone national security goal.

Venezuela

Venezuela is experiencing a political and economic crisis – marked by devastating hyperinflation – that has led to severe food and medicine shortages and has driven nearly four million people to flee their once-prosperous country since 2014.

This outflow of vulnerable Venezuelans is straining healthcare, education and other social services in neighboring countries, including Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, and Peru.

West Africa’s tremendous resources—human, agricultural, and mineral—are dogged by political instability, poor governance, environmental degradation, disease, extreme poverty, and lack of private investment opportunities. To combat these challenges, USAID’s West Africa Regional Mission, located in Accra, Ghana, implements innovative regional activities to address trans-boundary issues, as well as activities in countries where there is no USAID mission.

In Zambia, the last 16 years of strong economic growth raised the average per capita income to over $1,646 and made it a lower-middle-income nation. Zambia’s 29 years of successful multi-party democracy, with two peaceful transitions between ruling political parties, has made the country one of the more stable in sub-Saharan Africa. Despite the recent growth experienced within Zambia, much remains to be done to advance equitable development throughout the population.

Three out of four Zambians still live in extreme poverty and the country faces a myriad of challenges, including limited government capacity to plan and manage national development, low agricultural productivity, and inadequate transportation and energy infrastructure. Zambia is also encumbered by high unemployment, poor education outcomes, a burgeoning youth population, and health crises caused by the HIV/AIDS epidemic, malaria and other diseases, such as cholera and tuberculosis. 

USAID assistance improves the health of Zambians, reduces the incidence and impact of HIV/AIDS, malaria, and other illnesses, increases agriculture-led economic growth, mitigates the effects of climate vulnerability, raises the quality of basic education to increase literacy, and and enhances democratic governance.

Zimbabwe was once one of southern Africa’s most vibrant, productive, and resilient countries. However, over the past two decades, a series of political and economic crises have led to a general decline in the standard of living and a breakdown in public health, education, and infrastructure.  

The country has an estimated population of 14 million, and about 9.5 million live in rural areas.  Sixty-three percent of all households live in poverty, and 16 percent live in extreme poverty.  As government policies negatively affect the agriculture sector and the climate becomes more erratic, farmers have found it harder to produce sufficient yields, contributing to the country’s recurrent food insecurity.

Zimbabwe’s high mortality and illness rates are a result of an under-resourced health delivery system, which is overstretched by the high burden of HIV, TB, malaria, and maternal and childhood illnesses. More than a decade of worsening economic conditions and rising costs has eroded a once vibrant health system. Nonetheless, with U.S. Government support, the health sector has produced notable results such as an HIV prevalence rate that declined from 26 percent in 1999 to a current rate of 14 percent. The number of malaria cases has also decreased from 1.2 million in 2008 to less than 265,000 in 2018 – a dramatic 78 percent reduction.

USAID supports the people of Zimbabwe to strengthen health services, increase food security, support economic resilience, and promote democratic governance.
