We also integrate HIV prevention and treatment into sexual, reproductive health and rights and maternal and child health programmes across much of sub-Saharan Africa. By promoting comprehensive sexuality education (through key programmes such as the Girls Education Challenge) and driving efforts to prevent violence against women and girls, we are also helping to reduce the risk of HIV infection among vulnerable women and girls.</p> more like this

We are particularly concerned that the shutdown has taken place in parts of Rakhine where there are already significant restrictions on international access. We are clear that denying access to mobile data services restricts the right to freedom of expression and the ability to share reports of human rights violations. Embassy officials have raised our concerns with the Myanmar government. We continue to monitor the situation closely and urge the Myanmar government to restore mobile internet access to the affected townships.</p><p> </p> more like this

We welcome the efforts of the Armed Conflict Location and Event Data project and others to estimate the impact of the conflict, recognising that sadly the true fatality figures are likely to be higher. We maintain that a political settlement is the only way to bring long-term stability to Yemen and to address the worsening humanitarian crisis. All parties must engage constructively and in good faith to overcome obstacles and find a political solution to end the conflict.</p> more like this

We raise allegations of human rights abuses, including the use of child soldiers, with all parties to the conflict in Yemen. We have been clear that all parties must comply with International Humanitarian Law.</p><p>The UK firmly believes in the importance of international conventions to prevent the exploitation of children as soldiers. The UK has called for all states to sign up to the key international commitments pertaining to ending the recruitment and use of children in conflict including the Paris Principles and Commitments, the Vancouver Principles and the Optional Protocol on the involvement of children in armed conflict. We firmly believe this framework of standards and commitments provides vital safeguards for the rights of children in armed conflict. For example, 91 countries have endorsed the Safe Schools Declaration. The Declaration has led to conflict-affected countries committing to the re-opening and protection of schools.</p>
