USAID's Investments for Health in Asia Regional - Dollars to Results
FY 2011 $19.0 M
FY 2012 $11.8 M
Countries in Asia continue to suffer from the damaging impacts of infectious disease, including HIV/AIDS, avian influenza, malaria, and tuberculosis (TB), which cross national boundaries. Southeast Asia in particular is susceptible to new diseases and drug resistant strains of tuberculosis and malaria. Hunger and vulnerability to hunger also persist in Asia, which is home to nearly two-thirds of the world’s poor.
USAID'S HEALTH PROGRAM IN ASIA AIMS TO:
- Support comprehensive HIV/AIDS prevention, treatment, and care programs;
- Improve tuberculosis detection and treatment;
- Reduce the impact and spread of malaria; and
- Improve water supply and sanitation.
