United States


The US is the largest provider of ODA, remittances and FDI to developing countries.

The largest flow from the US is remittances (US$ 103 billion), which account for over one-quarter of total remittances to all developing countries. Net ODA from the US totalled US$ 31.1 billion in 2013, up from less than US$20 billion in the early 2000s. In 2012, ODA totalled 0.19% of US GNI.

Over a quarter of US ODA goes to the health sector – much of this goes to HIV/AIDS programmes in sub-Saharan Africa. Over half of US ODA is mixed project aid – often a bundle of finance, technical cooperation and other instruments.
