The 2016 Bilateral Development Review outlined the importance of investing in people as the fundamental building block for delivery of all UK aid objectives. Delivery of human development outcomes is contributing to each of the four strategic objectives set out in the Review. In allocating aid, the fit with these strategic objectives is carefully considered.
The Bilateral Development Review includes commitments on health, education, nutrition, water and sanitation and family planning. Through strengthening global health security and helping everyone to achieve their potential, UK aid investments in human development are designed to contribute to ending extreme poverty, promoting global prosperity and strengthening global security and resilience.
