USAID Myanmar Country Profile

Women coffee farmer from Shan State

Myanmar has embarked on a long and challenging process of democratic and economic reforms.  While the peaceful transition to a civilian-led government in 2016 was a milestone in Myanmar’s long struggle for democracy, significant challenges remain, particularly following the 2017 violence in Rakhine State.  The United States is committed to improving the welfare and well-being of all people in Myanmar and supporting a democratic transition that leads to the inclusive development of the country.

USAID works to strengthen Myanmar’s democratic institutions and processes, promote and protect human rights, decrease intercommunal conflict, support inclusive economic development and access to basic services, and improve health and welfare.
