§ 8. Ms Christine Russell
To ask the Secretary of State for International Development what steps her Department is taking to increase women's access to reproductive health services in Africa. 
§ Hilary Benn
Increasing women's access to reproductive health services is a high priority in Africa, where women are affected by poverty, high maternal mortality and, increasingly, by HIV/AIDS. DFID is working with national Governments and other organisations to improve sexual and reproductive health. We invested £150 million on this last year, and expect to invest more this year.
