The UK is a leading player in global health. We are committed to ending the preventable deaths of mothers, newborns and children by 2030. The Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office works with other countries, global health partners and through international forums on key global health issues, such as achieving Universal Health Coverage.

For example, we used our diplomatic expertise to host the Global Vaccine Summit, bringing together world leaders and representatives from more than 62 countries. The Summit raised a historic $8.8 billion for GAVI, which will immunise children and save lives.
