star this property answer text <p>The UK is deeply concerned that women are being detained because they cannot pay medical fees, including after childbirth complications. The WHO review will not be able to provide definitive numbers on the scale of this problem but will provide information on detention in hospitals for a policy brief that is expected by the end of 2019. DFID will ensure we respond to the policy brief. It will inform how we contribute to the long-term approach to promote financing reforms to benefit the poor and reduce out-of-pocket health expenditure.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The UK remains deeply concerned by the situation in Gaza and we continue to engage closely with the World Health Organisation, UN OCHA, MaP, and other health and humanitarian-based NGOs working in Gaza to ensure we are we are able to monitor the situation and humanitarian needs there. The Government has not made its own assessment of this specific issue.</p><p> </p><p>To help ensure hospitals in Gaza can continue to provide essential services on a range of health issues, we provided £1.5 million for the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) OPTs Appeal in 2018, and a further £2m in 2019. This new funding will contribute to the delivery of surgical equipment, drugs and disposables, wound dressing kits, and rehabilitative prosthetics. It will also help provide physical rehabilitation services for up to 3,000 disabled people. The UK remains engaged on the challenges facing Gaza’s health sector and we will continue to monitor the situation closely.</p> more like this
