Introduction to the profiles
• The UK Government is determined to help reduce the inequalities of opportunity we see around the world today. We believe that promoting global prosperity is both a moral duty and in the UK’s national interest. Aid is only ever a means to an end, never an end in itself. It is wealth creation and sustainable growth that will help people to lift themselves out of poverty.
This review has focused the UK's bilateral aid programme in fewer countries so we can target our support where it will make the biggest difference and where the need is greatest.
Every year the deaths of more than three million children under five - equivalent to the total UK population of that age - are attributable to undernutrition and yet the problem is being given low international priority.
This is according to a new report published by the Department for International Development which will form the evidence base for their forthcoming Nutrition Strategy.
80 percent of the world's undernourished children under 5 years of age live in just 20 countries .
