U.S. Foreign Assistance 2000-2010
Transcript of U.S. Foreign Assistance 2000-2010
Foreign assistance provides: -increased economic growth -reduces poverty -expands health care and education -improves governance
"In 2002, a National Security Strategy for the first time established global development, a primary
objective of U.S. foreign aid, as a third pillar of U.S. national security, along with defense and
diplomacy. A 2010 policy document reiterated that notion, arguing that development 'is as central
to advancing America’s interests as diplomacy and defense.'" http://www.fas.org/sgp/crs/row/R40213.pdf A promising begining... How will you act? ...Promises yet to be fulfilled. Launched in 2005, the President's Malaria Initiative (PMI) is a five-year, $1.2 billion expansion of U.S. Government resources to reduce the intolerable burden of malaria and help relieve poverty on the African continent. The goal of PMI is to reduce malaria-related deaths by 50 percent in 15 focus countries. http://pmi.gov/about/ The 2008 Lantos-Hyde Reauthorization Act authorized an expanded PMI program for 2009-2013. PMI is a key component of the U.S. Government's Global Health Initiative (GHI). As a result, the PMI strategy was revised to achieve Africa-wide impact by halving the burden of malaria in 70 percent of at-risk populations in sub-Saharan Africa, or approximately 450 million people. 2008 2003 In 2003, the President's Emergency
Plan for AIDS Relief was launched (PEPFAR.) As of 2008, this iniative has suported the care of 10.1 million people affected by HIV/AIDS worldwide. http://www.gatesfoundation.org/livingproofproject/Pages/pepfar.aspx http://www.gatesfoundation.org/infographics/Pages/we-can-end-malaria.aspx What you can do, NOW.

Globally, food prices were increasing. Which has created the perfect storm--- Just look at the Horn of Africa. Do you dare look closer? "All that is necessary for the
triumph of evil is for good men
to do nothing." ~Edmund Burke Drastic cuts fail to reflect the values of the American people, who care enough to open their own pocketbooks as individuals
