This is in line with our commitment to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals.</p><p>The UK is proud of this ambitious commitment and will bring together a range of investments in health (such as health research, global health initiatives and programmes delivered in specific countries) behind a common goal, working with others to end preventable deaths of mothers, new-born babies and children.</p><p>For example; as hosts of the Gavi Replenishment Conference this year, the UK government are committed to help secure the $7.4 billion that Gavi needs to deliver its life-saving work in the next five years. This funding will allow Gavi to vaccinate 300 million more children and save 7-8 million lives from preventable deaths by 2025. We will be publishing a paper in due course setting out our aims and objectives for reaching this goal by 2030.</p>
