Our programmes do not directly target specific sub groups of marginalised people eg; Christian women, but we do target marginalised communities from a range of disadvantaged backgrounds, including Christian women who are at risk of this terrible practice.</p> more like this

We have not made an assessment of the number of cases of faith targeted human trafficking, however the UK Government is currently working on a range of projects aimed at minimising the incidence of modern slavery (including trafficking) in Pakistan. DFID and the Home Office have also commissioned a study which will look at modern slavery and trafficking specifically. A second study on women and trafficking is planned in 2020.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Advance Market Commitment (AMC) for Pneumococcal Vaccines is a dynamic financing instrument of Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance. Its objective is to reduce deaths from severe pneumonia by reducing the cost of the pneumococcal vaccine. The AMC does this by incentivising vaccine manufacturers and generating greater competition by encouraging additional manufacturers to the market. So far, 114 million children have been vaccinated with AMC-supported pneumococcal vaccines, saving 762,000 lives.</p><p> </p><p>DFID has committed $485 million to AMC from 2010 until 2020. The AMC has consistently delivered and performs very strongly. It scored an A+ in its last Annual Review. The current end date is scheduled for December 2020. DFID are currently reviewing vaccine demand projections and in discussions with other stakeholders whether an extension is required in order to attract new manufacturers and generate wider benefits. This review is in line with our approach to maximise effectiveness and ensure good value for money.</p>
