star this property answer text <p>DFID has reviewed the report and welcomes its focus on long-term, systemic change which is central to DFID’s approach. Women and girls’ health and education are a top priority for DFID. At the UN General Assembly the Secretary of State announced £600 million in new funding for family planning supplies for women and girls in the world’s poorest countries. This week the UK announced a £515 million package of support for education. DFID is committed to generational transformation for the world’s poorest and already spends 57% of its bilateral budget on fragile and conflict affected states. The UK will host the Vaccine Alliance pledging conference next year to help create a healthier world. I welcome the report acknowledging DFID’s high standards of transparency and effectiveness. Other departments are making good progress and DFID continues to support.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Between 2009 and 2018 DFID’s spend on education doubled from almost £500 million to nearly £1 billion. The Prime Minister has publicly stated that education, particularly girls’ education, is a priority for the UK. He announced £90 million for education in emergencies and protracted crisis including £85 million to Education Cannot Wait at the G7 Summit, and last week the UK announced a £515 million package of support for education, including a £300 million pledge for the new International Finance Facility for Education. In total, these announcements will support 6.3 million girls. Alongside our commitment to the Global Partnership for Education, the UK is now the leading bilateral donor to all three major multilateral education funds and continues to be one of the leading bilateral donors to basic education. At the UN General Assembly last week, the UK has been calling for others to step up and follow our lead.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>If we are to meet the ambition of SDG 3 and ensure no-one is left behind, countries need to invest more public resources in health. The UK strongly supports the commitments in the United Nations Political Declaration on Universal Health Coverage. This calls on countries to increase public spending, with an emphasis on primary health care, noting World Health Organisation recommendations of an additional 1% of GDP or more. Evidence shows that the best way to achieve these financing increases is to secure political commitment rather than aid conditionality measures.</p> more like this

The UK invests around £1 billion per year through bilateral aid programmes in reproductive, maternal, newborn, child, and adolescent health, and our support to Gavi, the vaccines alliance, has contributed to the safe vaccination of over 700 million children. The UK will host Gavi’s replenishment in 2020, a demonstration of our continuing commitment to support efforts to save children’s lives from preventable diseases.</p> more like this

The UK is proud to have played a significant role in delivering these extraordinary results.</p><p> </p><p>As hosts of the Replenishment Conference, our priority will be to help Gavi secure the funding it needs to further deliver its life-saving work.

This includes promoting equitable coverage of immunisation to leave no-one behind and ensure vaccines are available for the most vulnerable. The UK will also prioritise ensuring our investment in Gavi is sustainable and delivers maximum value for money by supporting countries to effectively transition from Gavi support to increased domestic funding.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The UK believes all children should have access to lifesaving vaccines, no matter where they live. Equitable vaccine coverage is therefore a key priority for the UK’s support for Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance. This investment provides immunisation to the poorest children in 68 of the world’s poorest countries. Gavi will vaccinate an additional 76 million children by 2020, preventing 1.4 million deaths from vaccine preventable diseases.</p><p> </p><p>As well as providing support to strengthen the overall health system, Gavi focuses on improving access and equity by identifying the populations and geographical areas most likely to be under immunised and at risk of outbreaks. Gavi have also adapted their model to include a Fragility, Emergency and Refugees policy which provides a more quick and flexible response in fragile countries. This has helped reach unimmunised children in places like Syria and in Rohingya refugee camps in Bangladesh.</p><p> </p><p>As a Gavi Board member, the UK advocates for equitable coverage as a core priority both now and in the future strategy.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Healthy vaccine markets are essential to provide adequate supplies of vaccines at affordable prices for poor countries. This, in turn, improves availability and drives demand for immunisation. The UK supports healthy vaccine market competition through our investment in Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance.</p><p> </p><p>A core part of Gavi’s mission is to promote competition and reduce the cost of vaccines. Gavi now supports 17 manufacturers to provide critical vaccines at a lower cost. Many of these manufacturers are now based in low and middle income countries. This has successfully generated over US$764 million in cost savings in 2017 alone and has reduced the cost of immunising a child by 17% since 2016.</p><p> </p><p>The UK also supports Gavi’s Advanced Market Commitment for Pneumococcal Vaccines (AMC), an innovative approach to fostering market competition. By incentivising investment in research and development in the pneumococcal vaccine, the AMC has expanded manufacturing capacity and helped develop a healthy pipeline for vaccine production. This has helped enable 143 million children in 58 countries to be vaccinated against severe pneumonia.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The UK recognises the importance of providing affordable vaccines for the poorest nations. Through UK support to Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance, the price of common childhood vaccines has reduced by 17% since 2016. Bringing down vaccine prices is part of a wider strategy in Gavi to increase access to vaccines and our significant investment supports global initiatives to increase vaccine transparency and help ensure their affordability.</p><p> </p><p>Gavi helps secure the lowest price for vaccines for 68 of the world’s poorest countries. Gavi procures its vaccines through UNICEF, which makes public its historic, current and future prices for vaccines. For countries who are not eligible for Gavi-subsidised vaccines, the UK also advocates and supports its partners to make prices publicly available online. This helps establish benchmark prices so countries can negotiate better deals.</p><p> </p><p>Outside of Gavi supported countries, the UK is supportive of the World Health Organisation’s Global Strategy and Plan of Action and Roadmap for Access to Medicines. These plans help increase global price transparency whist also encouraging innovation that is crucial for future vaccine development.</p>
