While we are currently digesting the report’s findings we are delighted that UNFPA emphasises among its recommendations issues as varied as ending child marriage, championing reproductive rights, achieving gender equality and reaching young people and adolescents; all areas in which the UK is proud to lead the world. We will continue to be a strong partner to UNFPA, including on working to reduce unmet need for modern family planning and to support the demographic transition in the poorest countries.</p> more like this

We work to strengthen systems weaknesses, such as weak supply chains or poor procurement, which deter private investment, keep medicines prices high or lead to misuse or waste of medicines. We also place a great emphasis on research and development of new vaccines, medicines and diagnostics for conditions that affect millions of poor people. For example, the UK is a leading investor in public-private Product Development Partnerships (PDPs), designed to stimulate research and development (R&amp;D) where market incentives are insufficient.</p><p> </p><p>We support the aims of the UN High Level Panel on Access to Medicines. For it to fulfil its potential to improve access to affordable and quality medicines it will need to take a balanced approach, building and urge them to build on the WHO Global Strategy and Plan of Action (including underlying in-depth reports and discussions), and engaging withe existing global partnerships, and use its influence to galvanise Member States, public and private sectors around a common approach to this important issue.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p>
