Department for International Development

The Department for International Development (DFID) is the part of the government of the United Kingdom that manages Britain's development aid and works to eliminate extreme poverty. Reflecting the importance of international aid, this organization is spearheaded by a senior cabinet minister. DFID supports long-term missions to help address the underlying causes of poverty and also responds to immediate emergencies. It works in over 150 countries worldwide with over 64 offices overseas and focuses on major poverty challenges such as water shortage, climate issues, corruption, debt and conflict. Almost one-third of DFID aid is channeled through international bodies like the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria. The department's commitment to gender equality is evident in its work to realize the Millennium Development Goals.
