Strengthening health systems to deliver universal health coverage (UHC) is a priority for the UK and an overarching goal for DFID health investments.

star this property answer text <p>We have not raised this specific issue with the Israeli authorities. The right to education and the supply of books for this purpose is a basic right. That is why the UK continues to support education through our funding to the Palestinian Authority and the UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestinian refugees. Last year, UK support contributed towards the salaries of approximately 33,000 public servants under the Ministry of Education and Higher Education, including teachers, helping 25,000 young Palestinians to receive an education and proper reading material. We continue to regularly urge the Israeli authorities to remove restrictions on movement and access in Gaza which can impair access to quality education.</p><p>​</p> more like this

Initial detention periods have also been shortened. However we continue to have strong concerns about continued reports of ill-treatment of Palestinian minors in Israeli military detention and remain committed to working with Israel to secure improvements to its practices.</p> more like this
