From the American People
Djibouti has some of the lowest health indicators in the world with life expectancy at 46 years, maternal mortality at 546/100,000, and infant mortality at 67/1,000. It also has the third highest tuberculosis (TB) prevalence rate worldwide and a staggering malnutrition rate. Over the past four years, USAID made impressive gains in rural areas by increasing rural immunization coverage rates by 300%, and reducing the under five mortality rate by 27%. In FY 2009, USAID supported tuberculosis (TB), polio and malnutrition programs detected, treated, and mitigated these diseases.
