The countries are the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan; and the Republics of Bolivia, Ecuador, Ghana, Guatemala, Haïti, Honduras, Kenya, Mozambique, Perú, and Tajikistan.

The funds announced will purchase and distribute oxygen-generating equipment and related consumables and durables, and finance technical assistance to train health-care workers to use them.
 
The leading-edge equipment, technology, and assistance provided by this funding builds upon the more than $1.6 billion the US Department of State and USAID have already committed to the global fight against the novel coronavirus.
 
Through an All-of-America approach, the US will provide the $18 million in new funding for oxygen during Fiscal Year 2021 in coordination with host-country governments and other key stakeholders to promote the sustainability of this investment.
 
Since 2009, American taxpayers have funded more than $100 billion in health assistance, and nearly $70 billion in humanitarian assistance, around the world.
