In  July  2009,  addressing  the  Ghanaian  Parliament  in  Accra, President Barack Obama outlined his African policy, whereby he committed the United States to further efforts to stimulate African economic growth through increasing American trade and investment. The US also planned to assist the African States in the fight against evils such as HIV/AIDS, malaria, malnutrition, infant mortality, etc. which affect three-quarters of the continent.

This programme for the African continent, and particularly its fourth goal, that of security and stability, was subsequently redefined in the United States National Security Strategy.
