This hegemony has had both positive and negative effects on the region. on vieiw of acadmic scholar and other politician believe that there is positive side, the United States has provided economic assistance, military support, and technical expertise to many countries in the global south. This has helped to improve living standards, promote democracy, and combat poverty. For example, the United States has provided billions of dollars in aid to Africa to help fight HIV/AIDS, malaria, and other diseases.
