The Africa Bureau Health Team, within the Office of Sustainable Development (AFR/SD/H), coordinates AFR policies and strategies for all of USAID’s health programs in Africa, which total approximately $5 billion annually and represent the Agency’s largest investments on the continent. The Health Team directly manages funding and activities that support African institutional capacity development, as well as the identification and resolution of policy, program, and technical issues that are unique to the African context.
The Health Team works in close collaboration with other USAID Bureaus, including the Bureau for Global Health, the Bureau for Economic Growth, Education, and Environment, the Global Development Lab, the Bureau for Food Security, and the Bureau for Democracy, Conflict, and Humanitarian Assistance, to integrate programs and coordinate strategic and technical support to USAID missions, program reviews and assessments, staff development, and other Agency priorities. The Health Team works closely with African institutions and donor partners such as such as the World Health Organization's Africa Regional Office, the African Union, Regional Economic Communities, the World Bank, and UNICEF.
AFR/SD's Health Team has an annual budget of approximately $13 million, which includes the management of activities that support African capacity development and improving the quality, availability, and access to health services for Africa's most vulnerable populations. This includes programs to address data for decision-making, health financing challenges, as well as expanding relationships with regional networks and institutions. The Team works across all health sectors, including maternal, newborn, and child health (MNCH), reproductive health, infectious diseases such as malaria, tuberculosis, HIV/AIDS, global health security, and health systems strengthening.
