In financial year 21/22 the UK spent £221 million on humanitarian aid in East Africa. This included the provision of specialist nutrition commodities and health care and sanitation activities - sectors which are integral to nutrition. Given the broad nature of our nutrition work we are not able to provide accurate information about the size and proportion of humanitarian aid to East Africa that was spent on nutrition support in the 2021-22 financial year.
