star this property answer text <p>Malnutrition puts children and mothers at greater risk of getting sick and dying. It also stops children learning properly and results in them earning significantly less as adults. This has devastating effects on health, resilience, and economic potential, particularly in fragile and conflict-affected states where malnutriton remains persistently high. We have therefore announced that the UK will step up its efforts to end the preventable deaths of mothers, new-borns, and children.</p> more like this

Our position is not to partner with those companies that are uncompliant with the Code.</p><p>We provide technical assistance to partner governments to develop and strengthen their own national nutrition policies.

star this property answer text <p>The humanitarian situation in Gaza remains dire. The UN reports that unemployment is at 45 percent, with youth unemployment at over 60 percent. Some 46 percent of the population live below the US$5.50 poverty line and an estimated 60 percent of households are food insecure. The health service is severely overburdened and reliable access to clean water and electricity remains challenging.</p><p>DFID will provide £16m in humanitarian assistance to Gaza in 2019/20. This is supporting the health system, including improved trauma care, and contributing to emergency food aid for around 1.2 million vulnerable people. To help address the underlying causes of the humanitarian situation we are investing to build the capacity of Gaza’s water and energy services and to address barriers to trade. Ultimately, Gaza’s immense challenges can only be resolved with a political solution that delivers peace, stability and the easing of movement and access restrictions.</p> more like this
