Prime Minister David Cameron said today that the United Kingdom would double its current contribution to polio eradication.
Mr Cameron called on other donors to back the Global Polio Eradication Initiative as he announced the UK's commitment that will see an extra 45 million children fully vaccinated against the disease.
In 20 years, polio cases have been reduced by 99% and the disease is now close to being only the second in history - after smallpox - to be wiped out.
This strategy covers the UK's commitment to spend £30 million on mine action over the financial years 2010 - 2013 announced by Secretary of State Douglas Alexander on 25 November 2008.

Sometimes, local people understand the deadly risk landmines pose in an area, but poverty forces them to take that risk and access the land.
International Development Secretary Hilary Benn today announced a multi-million pound package of funding to eradicate polio by end 2005/early 2006, and to boost the effort to ensure the world stays polio free thereafter.
He said the UK is to provide £60m over the next three years.
The UK is to immediately and unilaterally plug the remaining funding gap of £20m ($36m) so that polio can be eradicated. The UK will also give another £40m in 2006-08 towards the cost of vaccinating over 500m children to ensure polio can never break out again.
