USAID, United States Agency for International Development
USAID’s mission is to advance broad-based economic growth, democracy and human progress in developing countries.
Issue Areas – Action Issues
Today, with the strong backing of the Obama Administration, the Agency is building on its legacy as one of the world’s premier development agencies and making new progress toward its ultimate goal: creating the conditions where U.S. assistance is no longer needed.
To do so, we are partnering with developing nations and other actors, making innovative use of science, technology and human capital to bring the most profound results to the greatest number of people.
