However, DFID has taken a number of steps to increase the range of organisations funded and the accessibility of its funds.</p><p> </p><p>DFID’s 2016 Civil Society Partnership Review recommended a shift towards more open, competitive programmes. This opened up opportunities for a wider range of civil society organisations. This was supported by the 2017 Supplier Review, when DFID committed to cutting red tape to boost competition and open up DFID’s market to a wider range of organisations.</p><p> </p><p>All DFID programmes are required to consider how the programme will contribute to reducing gender inequality.

star this property answer text <p>DFID’s support will help strengthen developing country capacity to raise domestic resources, including through assistance in the implementation of international tax standards. Although many factors impact on revenue growth, so forecasts are not available, past DFID tax programmes have proved to be great value for money. For example, the OECD’s Tax Inspectors Without Borders initiative, which assists developing countries to implement international tax standards, has generated an additional £100 for every £1 spent on operating costs.</p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The UK believes all children should have access to lifesaving vaccines, no matter where they live. Equitable vaccine coverage is therefore a key priority for the UK’s support for Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance. This investment provides immunisation to the poorest children in 68 of the world’s poorest countries. Gavi will vaccinate an additional 76 million children by 2020, preventing 1.4 million deaths from vaccine preventable diseases.</p><p> </p><p>As well as providing support to strengthen the overall health system, Gavi focuses on improving access and equity by identifying the populations and geographical areas most likely to be under immunised and at risk of outbreaks. Gavi have also adapted their model to include a Fragility, Emergency and Refugees policy which provides a more quick and flexible response in fragile countries. This has helped reach unimmunised children in places like Syria and in Rohingya refugee camps in Bangladesh.</p><p> </p><p>As a Gavi Board member, the UK advocates for equitable coverage as a core priority both now and in the future strategy.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Healthy vaccine markets are essential to provide adequate supplies of vaccines at affordable prices for poor countries. This, in turn, improves availability and drives demand for immunisation. The UK supports healthy vaccine market competition through our investment in Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance.</p><p> </p><p>A core part of Gavi’s mission is to promote competition and reduce the cost of vaccines. Gavi now supports 17 manufacturers to provide critical vaccines at a lower cost. Many of these manufacturers are now based in low and middle income countries. This has successfully generated over US$764 million in cost savings in 2017 alone and has reduced the cost of immunising a child by 17% since 2016.</p><p> </p><p>The UK also supports Gavi’s Advanced Market Commitment for Pneumococcal Vaccines (AMC), an innovative approach to fostering market competition. By incentivising investment in research and development in the pneumococcal vaccine, the AMC has expanded manufacturing capacity and helped develop a healthy pipeline for vaccine production. This has helped enable 143 million children in 58 countries to be vaccinated against severe pneumonia.</p>
