About China

USAID’s activities relating to China fall into three categories and are implemented by the Agency’s Thailand-based Regional Development Mission for Asia (RDMA).
First, USAID assists Tibetan communities in China by promoting more prosperous lives through employment creation; improved management of natural resource-based livelihoods, such as yak herding; and preservation of their cultural heritage.  
Second, through regional programs, we help address key cross-border challenges of global consequence. Those involving China include preventing the spread of HIV/AIDS and emerging infectious diseases, such as drug-resistant tuberculosis, malaria and influenza viruses of animal origin; combating wildlife trafficking; and through collaboration with the Asian Development Bank and other donors, encouraging infrastructure investment that minimizes negative impacts to the Lower Mekong countries.
Third, at the direction of Congress, USAID provides assistance in rule of law and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
