UK Aid Direct: A challenge fund designed to support the UK’s commitments to achieving the Global Goals.

MannionDaniels

Funded by the UK’s Department for International Development (DFID), UK Aid Direct was established in 2014 as a successor to the Global Poverty Action Fund (GPAF), which was created in 2010. UK Aid Direct is a challenge fund designed to support the UK’s commitments to achieving the Global Goals. The aim of UK Aid Direct is to fund small- and medium-sized national and international civil society organisations (CSOs) to reduce poverty and work towards achieving the Global Goals. Specifically, UK Aid Direct funding reaches the most marginalised and vulnerable populations, supporting the DFID agenda to ‘leave no one behind’. This agenda can be achieved through funding projects that encompass service delivery, economic empowerment, strengthening accountability or generating social change. As a flexible fund, UK Aid Direct is designed to be an adaptive and demand-led fund that responds to DFID priorities of:\n\n- Strengthening global peace, security and governance\n\n- Strengthening resilience and response to crisis\n\n- Promoting global prosperity\n\n- Tackling extreme poverty and helping the world’s most vulnerable\n\n- Delivering value for money

To achieve this high level impact it has two overarching health goals: • To tackle the issue of premature death and illness due to Non-Communicable Diseases (NCDs) like diabetes and heart disease, which account for 74% of premature fatalities in lower and middle income countries (LMICs). • To reduce incidents of premature mortality (e.g. infections contracted in hospitals) by improving health care outcomes. Meeting these objectives will help advance economic development in the partner countries but will also create opportunities for international and UK businesses as a secondary benefit.

Accelerating Action Against Child Marriage

UK Department for International Development

DFID is providing up to £39m over a period of 5 years (2015-2020) to support global efforts for accelerating action to end child marriage. The UK has been at the forefront of international efforts to end child marriage. This programme is aligned with UK’s national interest - we cannot end global poverty, realise lasting peace or prosperity without empowering girls and women. When a girl marries later, she is more likely to stay in school longer and have better access to information, support and resources to earn a decent income. The intended outcome of the programme is adolescent girls supported to make healthier, safer and more empowered life transitions including on marriage choices and childbearing. The intended impact is: Reduction in prevalence of child marriage.
