State Department

The US State Department plays a critical role in US government efforts to promote development and address humanitarian crises around the world, including managing US contributions to international organizations such as the UN and World Bank, overseeing the US commitment to fight global HIV/AIDS through PEPFAR, and facilitating aid to refugees and other vulnerable populations. CGD analyses State’s policies and practices across the range of its activities, as well as the Department’s own structure and operations, offering evidence-based proposals to make this central tool of US foreign assistance as effective as it can be.
