Alistair Burt responded with 'The UK Government has committed to saving 1.4 million children’s lives by immunising 76 million children against killer diseases by 2020. Through the Ross Fund we are leading a major new global research programme. This will accelerate the development of vaccines and drugs to eliminate some of the world’s deadliest infectious diseases, as well as saving lives from malaria and TB.
DFID supports countries to build stronger health systems, which will be able to respond to the existing disease burden and emerging health issues.'
