One of the UN Joint SDGF’s goals is increased sustainability of resources, especially for high-need, high-risk countries. With the help of the United Nations, the organization has partnered with academics, government officials and citizens to create solutions for widespread poverty.

One of its initiatives in Guatemala was to partner with the largest telecommunications provider, wherein they had initially joined forces to rebuild schools, but plans were later revised to use cell phones as a way to monitor diseases and vitamin deficiencies like anemia to make it easier for health care workers to best serve the most in need.

For a lower cost, many in poor countries are having increased access to health care they were denied in the past.
