Description

Australia's aid program contributes to sustainable economic growth and poverty reduction by supporting private sector development and strengthening human development. We focus on human development to drive improvements in education, health and gender equality outcomes in our partner countries. Significant benefits flow to whole communities when women can fully participate in economic, social and political life. Healthier, better educated populations are critical to building skilled and competitive workforces and lifting living standards. We will assist the most disadvantaged, including people with disability, find pathways out of poverty. Australia also supports its partner countries and communities to strengthen their resilience to future disasters.
