UK aid cuts risk millions of lives, warns World Health Organization

BBC News says cuts to the UK’s aid budget will leave millions of people at risk of dying from “neglected tropical diseases”, the World Health Organization (WHO) has said.

Nearly 280 million lifesaving tablets are likely to expire and have to be incinerated due to the withdrawal of UK money, the United Nations agency said.

The UK’s annual foreign aid budget has been reduced from 0.7% to 0.5% of national income, a cut of almost £4bn.
