star this property answer text <p>Iran's human rights record continues to be of serious concern to the UK, and the Foreign and Commonwealth Office has designated it as one of its Human Rights Priority Countries. The continued restrictions on freedoms of expression, religion and belief are deeply worrying. While some religious minorities are formally protected in the constitution, the reality is that many non-Muslims face discrimination. Despite constitutional recognition, the persecution of Christians has been continuous, systemic, and institutionalised. The Foreign Secretary ordered a review into the plight of persecuted Christians around the world. The interim report has been published and reviews the situation of Christian communities in Iran.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>It is difficult to assess the number of deaths resulting from the conflict in Yemen due to our lack of access and presence on the ground. 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

star this property answer text <p>It is not acceptable that young women, particularly in Africa, have the highest number of new HIV infections and deaths from AIDS. That is why the UK government puts the empowerment of girls and women at the heart of everything we do and is an essential component of our fight against AIDS.</p><p> </p><p>We are currently the second biggest donor to the Global Fund, which has embraced gender equality as central to accomplishing its mission. 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

star this property answer text <p>The British Embassy in Tel Aviv regularly raises the matter of medical permits with the Israeli authorities. Israeli restrictions severely restrict the movement of medical professionals, patients and families from Gaza, hampering the provision of quality health services, as well as impacting Palestinians in the West Bank. The situation in Gaza is particularly acute, and is compounded by frequent closure by Egypt of the Rafah crossing, preventing urgent medical cases from seeking treatment in Egypt. We are clear that Israel's occupation of Gaza is not sustainable. That is why we need a lasting peace agreement which ensures that all those who are in need of medical attention and their families have unimpeded access to healthcare provisions.</p> more like this
