The USG is providing assistance to 47 countries in Africa, and USAID currently has 23 bilateral missions in Africa. In addition, there are three regional missions that support activities in countries with a limited USAID presence. These regional missions also manage programs that aim to strengthen selected African regional institutions and organizations, to improve their capacity to contribute to Africas development in an environment of stability and security.
U.S. foreign assistance to Africa is directed to helping African governments, institutions, and African-based organizations incorporate good governance principles and innovative approaches to health, education, economic growth, agriculture, and environment programs. USAID programs and activities in Africa in these sectors aim to ensure that development assistance supports the overall goal of transformational diplomacy-to help build sustained and well governed states that respond to the needs of their people, reduce widespread poverty, and conduct themselves responsibly in the international system.
