answer text <p>Under the current Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development’s (OECD) Development Assistance Committee (DAC) rules the three hurricane affected Overseas Territories, Anguilla, the Turks and Caicos Islands and the British Virgin Islands, are not eligible to receive Official Development Assistance (ODA) due to their Gross National Income (GNI) per capita being above the ODA eligibility cut off point. The United Kingdom (UK) Government has committed £142 million of non-ODA funding to the hurricane relief effort in the Overseas Territories. In addition up to £300 million of loan guarantees will be available to help the affected Overseas Territories access the funds needed to Build Back Better. ODA rules have not and will not stop Britain dedicating the money needed for the hurricane recovery and reconstruction the Overseas Territories.</p> more like this

answer text <p>In 2016, through the Ministry of Defence, the UK participated in the US-led Train and Equip Programme, which aimed to train and equip screened members of the Syrian moderate opposition in the region at locations outside Syria. The training focused on basic infantry tactics, command and control, explosive hazard awareness training (EHAT) and medical training in order to build the capacity of forces whose operations on the ground against Daesh are being supported by the Global Coalition.</p><p>Through the Conflict Stability and Security Fund we have also funded some projects in which certain armed groups of the Syrian moderate opposition have been involved. These have included communications and medical training and, since 2015, projects to support stability in southern Syria. For security reasons, we do not disclose the names of those moderate opposition groups supported.</p> more like this

answer text <p>Malaria can be a cause of children starting school late or missing school. As the second largest international funder to the global malaria response, DFID’s support is reducing the impact of malaria, which enables children to attend school regularly and learn more effectively. Provision of quality schooling has a positive impact on the uptake of malaria services.</p> more like this

answer text <p>The World Health Organisation (WHO) casualty statistics are the best UN data currently available. Because of the active conflict in Yemen fewer than half of health facilities are fully functional. The WHO data reflects civilian injuries and deaths reported through health facilities, therefore they represent a partial picture. The real figure is likely higher.</p> more like this

answer text <p>​The Government regrets the US decision to withdraw from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPoA) nuclear deal and re-impose sanctions on Iran. Humanitarian goods are not subject to either US or EU sanctions. We are, nevertheless, working with our European partners on mechanisms to support continued trade in humanitarian goods, such as pharmaceutical exports. Following the re-imposition of US sanctions in November 2018 it is too early to make an assessment of the effect on public health outcomes in Iran.</p> more like this
