Stepping back when we should be stepping up

22 Jun 2020

Now more than ever it is evident how important investment and focus on global health is for the health of all of us. Following the news of the merger of DFID and FCO, we support the call to keep DFID independent.

We wish to see their global leadership in supporting health systems and the underlying causes of inequity, such as poverty, continue. We are pleased to be a joint signatory to the letter below from the UK Coalition against Neglected Tropical Diseases asking for this merger to be reconsidered.
