star this property answer text <p>DFID takes an integrated approach to our programming on sexual and reproductive health and rights. The UK Government is delivering on the Sustainable Development Goals, reflecting them in its programme of work and integrating them into the Single Departmental Plan process. DFID reports annually on its progress on planned activities in meeting these objectives in its annual report and online results pages. For example between April 2018 and March 2019 alone, at least 23.5 million total women and girls were reached with modern methods of family planning through our programmes, preventing 7.3 million unintended pregnancies, 2 million unsafe abortions, saving 8,300 women’s lives and preventing the trauma of 89,900 stillbirths and 52,900 new-born deaths. DFID also ensures our water and sanitation programmes address the rights of women and girls to access safe, private, hygienic and convenient sanitation facilities, including in humanitarian responses.</p><p> </p><p>DFID’s project-specific information (including all the annual reviews for our projects in these areas) is available on the Development Tracker website.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The UK does not currently intend to provide direct support in this area. We remain committed to alleviating the humanitarian situation in Gaza and our assistance continues to be focused on meeting the basic needs of Gazans. To that end, DFID have recently provided £5m to UNRWA’s Occupied Palestinian Territories (OPTs) emergency appeal which will help UNRWA provide food aid to one million people in Gaza. Through our support to UNRWA’s programme budget, the UK also supports UNRWA’s delivery of core services, including health services and basic education, to Palestinian refugees across the Middle East, and the collection of solid waste.</p><p> </p><p>In the medium term, DFID are working to address the underlying causes of humanitarian need in Gaza through an economic development programme which aims to lift the overall standard of living in Gaza and the West Bank by increasing trade and job creation, enabling greater movement and access for people and goods, and enhancing the supply of electricity and clean water, especially in Gaza.</p>

At the UN Security Council on 20 June, the UK Permanent Representative to the UN expressed concern about continuing Israeli settlement activity in the West Bank, which is contrary to international law and makes a two-state solution harder to achieve. We regularly raise our grave concerns on this issue with the Government of Israel and urge it to reverse its policy of settlement expansion.</p> more like this
