United Nations Association

The United Nations Associations are non-governmental organizations that exist in various countries to enhance the relationship between the people of a member state and the United Nations, raise public awareness of the UN and its work, promote the general goals of the UN and act as an advisory body to governments, decision makers and the news media. They are not a part of the UN itself.

Their long-term concerns comprise:
* The implementation of the Millennium Development Goals
* Peace, security and disarmament
* Human rights and humanitarian affairs

There are currently over 100 UNAs around the world. The secretariats for the World Federation of United Nations Associations are located in Geneva and New York.
