unstar this property answer text <p>The Government remains strongly committed to ending violence against women and girls across the world, and recognises the crucial role played by women’s rights organisations. In November 2016, the Secretary of State announced new funding to support 40 grassroots organisations with the local knowledge and expertise to address Female Genital Mutilation and child, early and forced marriage. We have also increased funding to the UN Trust Fund to End Violence Against Women, which provides grants to women’s rights organisations and other small grassroots organisations.</p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>The protection of civilians in Syria is a priority for this Government. We will continue to support all efforts to reduce the level of violence in Syria, and use all diplomatic tools to work for a political solution which allows Syrians to decide their own future. The UK has played a leading role in the UN Security Council, supporting resolutions aimed at improving humanitarian access, civilian protection and investigating chemical weapons attacks.</p><p>We will continue to pursue accountability in Syria, including through support for robust EU sanctions against the Asad regime. With UK support, the EU now has sanctions in place against 240 persons and 67 entities linked to the violent repression of civilians in Syria. The UK will maintain support for the UN Commission of Inquiry which is reporting on human rights violations and abuses; and the International Impartial and Independent Mechanism (IIIM) whose role is to investigate and collect evidence of crimes committed in Syria. The UK is contributing to the start-up costs of the IIIM.</p><p>The UK continues to play a leading role in the fight against Daesh, which has been guilty of so many atrocities against civilians. We and the Coalition against Daesh take all allegations of civilian casualties seriously and ensure they are subsequently investigated. All possible precautions are taken to minimise the risk of civilian casualties when conducting any form of military operation. Through our rigorous targeting processes we will continue to seek to minimise the risk of civilian casualties.</p>

unstar this property answer text <p>It has long been our position that Israeli settlement activity is illegal and undermines the viability of two states for two peoples, but it is far from the only obstacle to peace. UN Security Council Resolution 2334 addresses settlements while also calling for an end to incitement and terror. The resolution was passed on 23 December and asks the Secretary-General to report to the Council every three months on the implementation of its provisions. We continue to monitor the situation closely.</p> more like this

The UK Government’s recent investment in the Global Fund to fight AIDS, TB and Malaria will provide anti-retroviral therapy for 1.3 million people living with HIV.

unstar this property answer text <p>​Modern slavery is a crime which crosses borders and requires a co-ordinated international response. The Foreign Secretary, my Rt Hon. Friend the Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (Mr Johnson), has regular discussions with his European counterparts on human trafficking. The UK plays a leading role in the EU Threat group on Trafficking in Human Beings (EMPACT), which brings together law enforcement experts from most EU Member States and is supported by Europol, Eurojust, the European Commission, Interpol, Frontex and CEPOL (EU Police College).The UK has also led work to secure a UN Sustainable Development Goal to end slavery and irregular migration – including trafficking – was a priority theme at the 71st session of the UN General Assembly this year. The UK led a resolution on Contemporary Forms of Slavery at the recent Human Rights Council, working with EU partners to provide a focus for practical measures and concerted international action. In these and other ways, the Foreign and Commonwealth Office continues to support the Prime Minister, my Rt Hon. Friend the Member for Maidenhead (Mrs May), in her efforts to co-ordinate global action on these issues.</p>
