star this property answer text <p>As the third largest bilateral humanitarian donor, the UK is a global leader in supporting people in acute need, including those at risk of food insecurity. In 2017, we were amongst the first to raise the alarm and to provide support for populations at risk of dying from starvation in Somalia, South Sudan, Yemen and North East Nigeria. We provided £170 million for provision of humanitarian aid in Somalia in 2017, supporting those at risk of famine and in 2017/18 our support in South Sudan reached over 420,000 people with food assistance. Since 2013, we have spent approximately £1.3 billion supporting the scale up of nutrition services in humanitarian contexts including Yemen, South Sudan, Somalia, Nigeria and the DRC.</p><p> </p><p>Our approach is to act early to save more lives, and to build the resilience of communities and states to crises and shocks. Our work on humanitarian early warning systems raises awareness of crises where food security is deteriorating and informs timely responses to mitigate the impact of acute food insecurity. Alongside this, we also prioritise longer-term responses to support food security, including through agricultural programmes.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is a major global health threat, and tackling it is a UK priority. DFID, alongside the Department of Health and Social Care, provides support to developing countries' health and hygiene services, which also supports tackling antimicrobial resistance.</p><p> </p><p>DFID support includes work to prevent infection and, in turn, reduce the need for antimicrobials. For example, through DFID’s support to GAVI, the Vaccine Alliance, the UK will help immunise 300 million children between 2016 and 2020.</p><p> </p><p>DFID also supports the prompt diagnosis and treatment of disease and the development of new drugs and diagnostic tools to treat resistant infection. DFID investment in the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, TB and Malaria contributed towards treating 102,000 people for drug-resistant tuberculosis in 2017. The Department of Health and Social Care’s £265 million Fleming Fund also supports low and middle-income countries to improve surveillance and laboratory capacity for addressing AMR.</p><p> </p><p>Since 2015 DFID has also supported 40 million people to gain access to clean water and sanitation, and DFID also supports water, sanitation and hygiene in healthcare facilities, both of which are important for preventing infection.</p>
