Under the Administration's FY2006 foreign assistance request, U.S. aid to sub- Saharan Africa would continue to grow, due to sharp increases through the State Department's Global HIV/AIDS Initiative. Twelve focus countries in Africa are benefitting substantially under this program. Assistance through the Child Survival and Development Assistance programs would decline, but a new Transition Initiatives program would provide $95 million to Ethiopia and Somalia. Overall, non-food aid to Africa would total about $3.6 billion under the request compared with an estimated $3.4 billion being allocated in FY2005

The United States in Africa : Bush policy and beyond by Raymond W Copson( Book )

13 editions published between 2007 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 324 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The George W. Bush administration maintains that in sub-Saharan Africa it has made major new contributions in fighting disease, promoting development, fostering democracy, and promoting peace. Yet, despite the rhetoric, is the Bush administration really working to bring about a fairer and more just Africa?" "Though aid has increased and a major AIDS initiative has been launched, Copson argues that US policy in Africa falls well short of meeting reasonable standards of fairness and justice. He concludes by assessing the prospects of a more equitable policy emerging in future administrations."--Jacket

This report provides basic background on Africa and its history, U.S. policy, and congressional involvement, for the general congressional reader. Africanists generally agree that loyalties to large ethnic groups, a key factor in African politics today, were largely absent in pre-colonial Africa. From the 1870s through the early twentieth century, nearly the entire sub-Saharan region was divided among the European powers. The Europeans built a basic economic infrastructure; but imposed a bureaucratic system of government and strengthened traditional chiefs and other "big men" to help them rule. In the first years of the 1960s, there were high hopes that the end of colonialism would bring rapid economic growth. The Cold War contributed to Africa's difficulties, flooding the continent with arms and strengthening a number of repressive regimes that had superpower backing. French policy also tended to bolster authoritarian governments in former French colonies. In the early 1990s, hopes for Africa's future revived following widespread political and economic reforms and the end of the Cold War. Later in the decade, however, the pace of reforms slowed and central Africa fell into an era of violent conflict. "Afro-pessimists" believe that these developments have gravely damaged Africa's prospects, but others argue that they are temporary problems masking an underlying "African Renaissance." The Clinton Administration sided with the "Afrooptimists," despite frustrations over the war in Congo (formerly Zaire) and other problems. The 106th Congress passed legislation to strengthen U.S.-African economic ties and to boost spending to fight the HIV/AIDS epidemic in Africa and worldwide
