I. EXECUTIVE SUMMARY
For many years, the Angolan town of Cuito Cuanavale was notorious for landmines, a tragic reminder of the country’s 40 years of conflict. But now, thanks in part to U.S. assistance, “Africa’s most mined town,” is making progress in addressing that deadly legacy of its history. Earlier this year, I visited to witness first-hand the life-changing demining work supported by the U.S. Department of State.

Rwanda, with a population of 11 million, is a constitutional republic dominated by a strong presidency. In August voters elected President Paul Kagame to a second seven-year term with 93.1 percent of the vote.
The Republic of the Congo, with a population of 3.7 million, is a parliamentary republic in which most of the decision-making authority and political power is vested in the president and his administration. Denis Sassou Nguesso was reelected president in a July 2009 election with 78 percent of the vote. The country has a multiparty political system although members of the president's Congolese Labor Party (PCT) occupy most senior government positions.
Malaria prevention and control are major foreign assistance objectives of the U.S. Government (USG). In May 2009, President Barack Obama announced the Global Health Initiative (GHI), a six-year, comprehensive effort to reduce the burden of disease and promote healthy communities and families around the world.
