Every day, around the clock, the United Nations is working to create a more secure, prosperous, and healthy world. Often with little fanfare or media attention, the UN does everything from providing lifesaving aid to victims of war and natural disasters to stemming the spread of infectious diseases. The UN’s work in these areas promotes fundamental American values and advances our nation’s core foreign policy, national security, global health, and economic objectives.
