The UN system is comprised of the UN, whose headquarters is in New York, and more than 30 affiliated organizations—known as programs, funds, and specialized agencies—with their own membership, leadership, and budget processes. These groups work with and through the UN to promote worldwide peace and prosperity.
UN programs and funds are financed through voluntary contributions rather than assessed contributions, and include the following.
UN specialized agencies promote core U.S. foreign policy, national security, economic, public health & humanitarian objectives.
