Written answers (Question to Foreign)

The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade does not provide funding to organisations for the promotion or provision of termination of pregnancy.  The Government's policy for international development, A Better World, published last February continues Ireland’s longstanding focus on improving the health of women and girls, as part of Ireland’s contribution to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals.
