unstar this property answer text <p>The UK Government is committed to driving action to eradicate modern slavery internationally, as well as in the UK. <br>The Government is developing strong partnerships with countries that have many victims trafficked into the UK, as well as working with countries that have a high prevalence of slavery to support their efforts to tackle it. The Government is also advocating for better multilateral engagement and international coordination to drive action on modern slavery globally. In September 2017 the Prime Minister launched a Call to Action at the UN General Assembly (UNGA) to encourage countries to drive action to tackle modern slavery - 41 countries have now endorsed the Call to Action. The Prime Minister also announced at UNGA that the UK would double its aid budget for tackling modern slavery to £150m. This includes the £33.5m Modern Slavery Fund managed by the Home Office for targeted projects in countries from which the UK receives high numbers of victims. <br>More information on the Government’s international work can be found at chapter 2 of the 2017 UK Annual Report on Modern Slavery.</p>
