star this property answer text <p>​The UK firmly believes that human rights are universal and should apply equally to all people. We promote universal human rights as part of our Commonwealth engagement. Where we have specific concerns, we raise them directly as part of our ongoing dialogue with the Ugandan Government. Our High Commission, alongside other missions in Kampala, has released statements calling on the Ugandan Government to guarantee freedoms enshrined in the Ugandan Constitution. In Uganda, UK Aid funds human rights training for police and the prisons service. We will continue to support civil society groups in Uganda working to improve protection of minority rights.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Tackling malnutrition is an important part of the Department for International Development’s work in Rwanda. It is delivered through nutrition-specific interventions in programmes on early childhood development and stunting. It is also integrated into broader interventions such as those on agriculture and social protection, for example through nutrition and child sensitive cash transfers and investment in fortified foods. A new research programme will generate evidence on what works to strengthen nutrition service delivery at scale. DFID’s support for nutrition in Rwanda over the last three years has reached 560,000 children under five (180,000 of whom are children under two) and 1.1 million women of reproductive age (of whom 680,000 are pregnant or lactating women).</p> more like this
