DFID does not disaggregate specific information on aid spending committed to tackling religious persecution, however, we are firmly committed to protecting ethnic and religious minorities, and we raise the issue with partner countries. The UK promotes and protects the right to freedom of religion or belief internationally, regionally and bilaterally.
