IMF responds to concerns about the impact of policies on developing countries

In April, members of our network wrote to Alex Gibbs, the UK representative to the IMF, to raise concerns about the impact of IMF policies on efforts to improve health and education in developing countries.

In his response, Alex Gibbs recognised that “It is important to provide adequate expenditure on poverty reduction and social sectors to ensure countries have a healthy and productive population” and noted that the UK has “strongly supported” reforms to limit structural conditions placed on developing countries.
