star this property answer text <p>The UK is deeply concerned about the challenges facing over a million Palestinian refugees who rely on food assistance in Gaza. We recognise that Palestinian refugees need UNRWA to be on a more secure financial footing. To that end, the UK is working with UNRWA and other donors to support cost cutting efforts, diversify donor income, and encourage multi-year funding commitments.</p><p> </p><p>The UK is a leading donor to UNRWA and I can confirm that the UK has committed to providing up to £80m to UNRWA over the next two years. However, a long-term solution requires a just, fair, agreed and realistic settlement for Palestinian refugees. Until that happens the UK remains firmly committed to supporting UNRWA and Palestinian refugees.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Our family planning programmes are delivered in accordance with local government policies, and the financial model varies considerably from context to context. We do not currently collect the information requested as it would be difficult to do this comprehensively and reliably. The UK is working with others to encourage governments to adopt ambitious investment goals for Universal Health Coverage, including sexual reproductive health and rights. Through our work with partner countries, we promote financial protection and reductions in out of pocket health expenditure, to reduce the burden on poor people and families.</p><p> </p><p>Our new regional WISH programme with the International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF) is focused on reaching the very poor and reducing costs. Although some country programmes do charge for clients who can afford to pay, they employ a no-refusal policy to allow clients that are poor. Proceeds from these services are used to further access for the poorest and most marginalised.</p>
