star this property answer text <p>The UK Government is committed to ensuring all children are able to complete a full cycle of quality education. Between 2011 and 2015 DFID supported over 11 million children into primary and lower secondary school (7.5 million children in countries considered fragile), and training 380,000 teachers through our multilateral partners. In 2015, the UK again committed to support a further 11 million children in the poorest countries to gain a decent education by 2020.</p><p>DFID is also supporting up to one million of the world’s poorest girls through DFID’s Girls Education Challenge (GEC). In July, DFID co-hosted the first, hugely successful Girls’ Education Forum in London and announced a further £100 million through the GEC to continue this support and help an additional 175,000 of the poorest, most marginalised adolescent girls in the world to get a decent education.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Yemen is one of the most serious and complex humanitarian crises in the world. The United Nations (UN) estimates that 21.2 million people in Yemen require humanitarian assistance to meet their basic needs for food, water, sanitation, and healthcare, or protect their fundamental rights. Yemen is also experiencing an economic crisis, which has driven up food and other prices, and reduced people’s purchasing power.</p><p>Ultimately, only an end to the conflict will address the humanitarian crisis. The UK is working closely with other countries to de-escalate the conflict and is providing significant support to UN-led peace talks. The UK is also working with the UN and other countries to improve commercial and humanitarian access to and within Yemen. We are providing desperately needed humanitarian aid to Yemen and have so far committed to spending £72 million in Yemen this year.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The UK Government is determined to improve sexual and reproductive health and rights, including access to modern family planning methods. We were instrumental in ensuring the Sustainable Development Goals included two targets covering universal access to sexual and reproductive health and reproductive rights and we are encouraging other countries to increase their commitments. Our investments in family planning aim to reach 24 million additional women and girls by 2020 and we are on track to meet this. In 2014, the most recent year for which figures are available, UK spending on family planning was £203 million, exceeding our 2012 London Summit commitment to double our yearly spend in this area.</p><p>We are currently developing our plans to 2020. As well as a large commitment to the United Nations Population Fund Supplies Programme (£356m until 2020), DFID also supports the Family Planning 2020 Secretariat, work on shaping reproductive health markets through the Clinton Health Access Initiative, and the Reproductive Health Supplies Coalition.</p><p> </p><p> </p>
