star this property answer text <p>The UK is the largest donor to Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance, committing £1.44 billion between 2016 and 2020. This support will vaccinate 76 million additional children by 2020, saving 1.4 million lives from vaccine-preventable diseases in 68 of the world’s poorest countries. The UK will host the pledging conference for Gavi in June 2020.</p><p>DFID support to Gavi includes a wider package of health care support designed to strengthen and integrate services. Immunisation is often a child’s first point of contact with their health service. It creates an opportunity where malnourished children can be identified and treated. Vaccines can also prevent some of the infectious diseases and causes of malnutrition.</p><p>The UK is committed to investment in the integration of nutrition within other sectors, including health. We have championed efforts to achieve Universal Health Coverage by bringing together initiatives on health security, antimicrobial resistance, and nutrition, into a single Universal Health Coverage approach.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The UK is a leading donor supporting the Government of Ethiopia to integrate nutrition into health programmes in Ethiopia.</p><p>Under the Accelerating Reduction of Undernutrition in Ethiopia programme (£49m, 2013-2018), we supported the transition of service delivery for nutrition screening, Vitamin A supplementation and deworming from resource-intensive donor-financed campaign-based delivery, into fully government funded routine service delivery in the four regions with the highest rates of stunting in Ethiopia.</p><p>DFID continues to support the Government of Ethiopia in delivering nutrition programmes as part of routine heath service delivery. Currently the Sustaining and Accelerating Primary Health in Ethiopia programme (£250m,2015-2020) is supporting the first 1000+ days nutrition initiative, the provision of micronutrient supplies and implementation of the Seqota declaration. This aims to end hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition, and promote sustainable agriculture in the worst affected parts of the country. Our Building Resilience in Ethiopia Programme (£262m, 2017-2022) is also working to respond to nutrition emergencies, reducing reliance on parallel humanitarian response.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The UK is fully committed to supporting Gavi and saving children’s lives through increasing access to vaccines in lower income countries. Since 2000, Gavi has helped to immunise 690 million children, preventing more than 10 million deaths. We see Gavi’s Mid-Term Review meeting as a crucial opportunity to celebrate Gavi’s extraordinary work, whilst also critically assessing how it can make even further progress in improving access to lifesaving vaccines for the world’s most vulnerable people.</p><p>Regretfully, diary pressures mean Ministers are unavailable to attend the meeting. However, senior officials from the Department for International Development will be attending and will ensure strong UK representation in these vital discussions.</p> more like this
