Resources on Faith, Ethics and Public Life

UN Foundation

The nonprofit United Nations Foundation (UNF) helps the UN effectively address global challenges through public-private partnerships, cooperative advocacy, community building, and resource gathering. Main areas of focus include children's health, climate and energy, sustainable development, HIV/AIDS prevention and care, technology, and women's health. UNF supports the Nothing But Nets Campaign against malaria as well as initiatives that target measles and polio. Energy efficiency and energy access programs incorporate carbon reduction efforts; others encourage sustainable tourism, local entrepreneurship, and market access. The role of mobile technology in disaster response and healthcare data gathering is another priority, as is investing in adolescent girls and sexual and reproductive health services. Finally, UNF raises public awareness about the work of the UN in the United States and facilitates similar communication with other governments. The foundation often cooperates with faith-based organizations and faith leaders for both fundraising and program implementation.
