unstar this property answer text <p>Restrictions on movement and access imposed by the Israeli authorities on Gaza have resulted in a worsening of the already poor humanitarian situation. In May, 2,206 permit applications were made to the Government of Israel to enter Israel at the Erez crossing for healthcare, with 61% approved, 8% denied and 31% delayed. In the same month, 2,426 patient companion applications were made with 47% approved, 13% denied and 40% pending. The UK regularly raises and will continue to call on the Israeli government to ease access restrictions further and for Israel and the Palestinian Authority to work together to ensure a durable solution for Gaza. In addition to our diplomatic efforts, we have recently announced a new £1.6 million package of support to be delivered through the World Health Organisation which will help to provide life-saving treatment to more than 380,000 people in Gaza, including a new limb unit.</p> more like this

DFID has undertaken a detailed prioritisation exercise to assess the internal resource required to maintain essential delivery. For DFID, this entails meeting the legal commitment to spend 0.7% of GNI (Gross National Income) on international development in an effective and value for money way and the ability to respond to humanitarian emergencies. All other DFID business is highly important however officials have taken decisions to slow or pause delivery in order to support the EU exit related resource requirements of other government departments.
