The International Development Strategy highlights our commitment toward ending preventable deaths and improving health outcomes for mothers, new born babies and children. The FCDO is continuing to engage with our partners globally and at country level in line with the Ending Preventable Deaths (EPD) Approach paper. Since January 2022, the UKAid-funded Hygiene Behaviour Change Coalition has reached an additional 500,000 people with hygiene messages to reduce the spread of C-19 and other preventable diseases. The FCDO is currently identifying EPD flagship countries, and exploring ways of better supporting the network's EPD programming through technical assistance on nutrition, water and sanitation, sexual reproductive health and rights, and access to quality health services. We continue to deliver our commitments on EPD using our programme and policy work, and diplomatic networks.
