USAID Ecuador: 52 Years of Partnership
Since 1961, the Government of Ecuador and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) have worked in partnership on countless innovative and sustainable programs to advance Ecuador's development objectives, including most recently the country's National Plan for Good Living. Our common goal has been to strengthen the capability and potential of Ecuador and its people. This alliance has improved the lives of hundreds of thousands of Ecuadorians nationwide through economic opportunities, biodiversity conservation, infrastructure, civic participation, health services, education, housing, and disaster prevention and mitigation, among others. Throughout 52 years of partnership, USAID has invested a total of $809 million to advance the health and wellbeing of the Ecuadorian people.
