Since 1946, the United States has helped the Republic of the Philippines to develop the country's infrastructure, provide training and technical assistance, increase agricultural productivity and economic growth, promote sustainable environmental management, improve health and nutrition and foster democracy and decentralization.

USAID’s current strategy seeks to accelerate and make economic growth more inclusive through improved competitiveness and increased infrastructure services; improved fiscal management and revenue administration; strengthened governance, rule of law, anti-corruption efforts and electoral processes; improved human rights protection and anti-trafficking efforts; improved family health, reduced geographic disparities in health services and increased access to water and sanitation; increased access to quality basic education; improved environmental management; and increased effectiveness of disaster preparedness and relief programs. The Mindanao focus is also retained.
