Bosnia and Herzegovina–United States relations are the bilateral relations between Bosnia and Herzegovina and the United States of America. The 1992–95 war in Bosnia and Herzegovina was ended with the help of participation by the United States in brokering the 1995 Dayton Agreement. The United States maintains command of the NATO headquarters in Sarajevo. The United States has donated hundreds of millions of dollars to help with infrastructure, humanitarian aid, economic development, and military reconstruction in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) and Support for Eastern European Democracies (SEED) has played a large role in post-war Bosnia and Herzegovina, including programs in economic development and reform, democratic reform (media, elections), infrastructure development, and training programs for Bosnian professionals, among others. Additionally, there are many non-governmental organizations (NGOs) that have likewise played significant roles in the reconstruction.[1]

According to the 2012 U.S. Global Leadership Report, 33% of Bosnia and Herzegovina's people approve of U.S. leadership, with 49% disapproving and 18% uncertain.[2]
