USAID Zimbabwe Country Development Cooperation Strategy 2016-2021

This review details USAID’s development cooperation strategies for inclusive, accountable governance and social, political, and economic development with equal opportunity in Zimbabwe. Zimbabwe’s high mortality and morbidity rates are a result of an under-resourced health delivery system, which is overstretched by high rates of HIV, tuberculosis, malaria, and maternal and childhood illnesses. More than a decade of worsening economic conditions and rising costs have eroded a once vibrant health system, which now functions largely due to donor assistance. That said, the health sector has produced notable results, such as an HIV prevalence rate that declined from 20 percent in 2006 to a current rate of 15 percent. There are opportunities for progress, despite the challenging environment. It is these opportunities that produced USAID’s current successes, which include reductions in HIV prevalence and stunting rates, and more resilient communities.
