Approximately 66 million Pakistanis live in poverty and 12 million children are out of school. One in 11 children die before their fifth birthday and 12,000 women die in childbirth every year. The population is set to rise by 50% in less than 40 years. UK development spend in Pakistan is an investment in a more prosperous, more stable country which will not only help millions of poor Pakistanis, but will also improve stability and security in the region, and beyond.
