star this property answer text <p>The British Embassy in Tel Aviv regularly raises the matter of medical permits with the Israeli authorities. Israeli restrictions severely restrict the movement of medical professionals, patients and families from Gaza, hampering the provision of quality health services, as well as impacting Palestinians in the West Bank. The situation in Gaza is particularly acute, and is compounded by frequent closure by Egypt of the Rafah crossing, preventing urgent medical cases from seeking treatment in Egypt. We are clear that Israel's occupation of Gaza is not sustainable. That is why we need a lasting peace agreement which ensures that all those who are in need of medical attention and their families have unimpeded access to healthcare provisions.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The commitments of the UN High-Level Meeting on TB included ambitious targets for TB control, prevention and treatment. As the largest international funder of tuberculosis programmes, the Global Fund has a key role in meeting these commitments, and a full replenishment in October will be essential. The Global Fund’s work will necessarily complement that of national governments, which retain primary responsibility for protecting their citizens from tuberculosis. Since the High-Level Meeting, the UK has worked with others to develop an accountability framework for delivering on the commitments, which has now been finalised.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Global Fund has a key role to play in ending the epidemics of AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria and achieving universal health coverage. To reach its ambitious $14 billion target for the Sixth Replenishment, it will be necessary for donors to step up from both public and private sectors. As part of the G7 Health Ministers’ Declaration in May 2019, the UK affirmed its commitment to support the success of the Sixth Replenishment and to improve the effectiveness and sustainability of the Global Fund’s programmes. Since then we have remained in close contact with our international counterparts to encourage them to ensure the replenishment is a success.</p> more like this

The UK is leading work on development of new antibiotics and treatment combinations and new ways to rapidly test for drug resistance. DFID’s support to the Global Fund helps to ensure rapid rollout of new tools. For example, UK funding has helped to roll out a new multi-drug-resistant TB treatment regimen in 30 countries where the Global Fund operates.</p><p> </p><p>Strengthening TB prevention, diagnosis and treatment also contributes to strengthening broader health systems. The UK’s investment in the Global Fund is building national capability to deliver quality health services and contributing to Universal Health Coverage and to ensuring that no country and no person is left behind.</p> more like this
