Welcome to the the United Nations Association of Greater Kansas City
STAND UP FOR THE UNITED NATIONS IN AMERICA'S HEARTLAND
The Greater Kansas City Chapter of the United Nations Association represents members of the United Nations Association (www.unausa.org) in western Missouri and eastern Kansas. Our chapter has established tremendous programs in support of the U.N. including the Mayor’s United Nations Day Dinner (a Kansas City tradition since 1972), the U.N. Peacekeepers Roundtable (in cooperation with the Harry S. Truman Library and Museum and the U.N. Peace Plaza), and the U.N.A. Roundtable on Food and Agriculture. Our energetic Young Professionals Group has promoted U.N. programs relating to children, refugees and peacekeeping.
Join us as we expand these initiatives and launch new activities to educate our community on the essential work of the United Nations.

Healthy Mothers, Healthy Children:
Ensuring Safe Pregnancy and Birth for Women around the World
CARE along with the United Nations Association of Kansas City and the Association of Physicians of Pakistani Descent invites you to attend a special event to learn more about global efforts to develop a comprehensive approach to maternal health, including access to family planning services, and how we can work together to build support in the Kansas City area for this important work. A special guest from CARE Tanzania will join us for this discussion to share his first-hand experience on the important role that comprehensive maternal health plays in helping mothers have safe pregnancy and deliveries in some of the poorest, most vulnerable communities in the world.
