UN Cares is pleased to announce the results of its 2013 global monitoring exercise, in which more than 10,000 respondents from 170 countries participated. In short, the UN system as a whole continues to make progress in achieving the UN Cares 10 Minimum Standards, with most indicators being maintained or slight increased. That said, progress varies significantly between organizations. Importantly, the report confirms the impact of managerial commitment in achieving other minimum standards.
"...analysis reveals that managerial commitment is highly associated with increased knowledge and favourable behaviour and attitudes. Specifically, respondents who say management encourages participation in UN Cares activities also report being significantly more trusting of their colleagues. They are 65% more likely to know where to get HIV-related treatment and are nearly twice as likely to have attended a learning activity."
Therefore, we thank not only our dedicated UN Cares teams in more than 120 countries, but also managers throughout UN organizations who have supported staff attendance at UN Cares activities - and who have attended themselves. Our next global monitoring exercise will take place in early 2016. You can browse the full report here... 2013 UN Cares Report
