Mr. Stephen O'Brien: To ask the Secretary of State for International Development what funding was allocated by his Department and its agencies for the control of malaria in each year between 19992000 and 200405, broken down by (a) country, (b) global region and (c) recipient organisation; and what such funding has been allocated for each financial year to 200910. 
Mr. Gareth Thomas: UK support to malaria control is provided through funding to: bilateral programmes at country level; global partnerships and programmes; multilateral agencies; and research agencies.
At country-level DFID supports malaria control through bilateral programmes. Some of these are malaria specific, but increasingly DFID funds the

broader health sector plans of developing country governments through sector wide programming and poverty reduction budget support. Such sectoral programmes will build capacity in health systems to improve the way health services diagnose and treat all main causes of illness. It is therefore not always possible to identify the proportion spent on malaria. From 199899 to date UK support at country level to specific malaria programmes was about £58 million. In addition we have provided approximately £49 million for projects targeted on malaria and other diseases or which may have an impact on malaria control. This funding is part of over £1.5 billion committed by the UK to strengthening developing country health systems since 1997.
DFID has contributed about £153 million from 199899 to date to international programmes which target malaria and other diseases. In addition we also provide funding to multilateral organisations such as the World Bank and the European Commission which also support malaria control and health services.
DFID has committed funding to a number of global health partnerships, multilaterals, research agencies, and public-private partnerships. These current and future commitments are set out in table A as follows. These figures are not broken down by year.

Hilary Benn: In order to qualify for debt relief under the heavily indebted poor countries (HIPC) initiative, all HIPCs are required to develop a poverty reduction strategy paper. DFID works to ensure that gender issues are included in the analysis of poverty and that women are fully involved in stakeholder consultations on poverty reduction strategies. DFID has recently renewed its commitment to assisting partner governments to strengthen their capacity to analyse gender issues in policy formulation, implementation and monitoring.
Jeremy Corbyn: To ask the Secretary of State for International Development how much aid the UK provided to Rwanda (a) bilaterally and (b) multilaterally in each year since 1997; and if he will make a statement.
