U.S. Foreign Assistance to Sub-Saharan Africa: The FY2012 Request

U.S. Foreign Assistance to Sub-Saharan Africa: The FY2012 Request

Date: May 20, 2011
Creator: Arieff, Alexis; Cook, Nicolas; Salaam-Blyther, Tiaji; Kendall, Alexandra E.; Tarnoff, Curt & Ho, Melissa D.
Description: Sub-Saharan Africa, the world's poorest region, receives over a quarter of all U.S. bilateral foreign assistance. Aid to Africa more than quadrupled over the past decade, primarily due to sizable increases in global health spending during the Bush Administration and more measured increases in development, economic, and security assistance. The Obama Administration's FY2012 bilateral Africa aid budget request, at $7.8 billion, represents an increase of roughly 10% compared to FY2010, albeit at a more restrained growth rate than in previous years (see "The FY2012 Request by the Numbers"). FY2011 enacted levels are not yet available by region. The proposed increases are concentrated in the areas of health, governance, and agriculture.
