The United Impact Fund
United Global Alliance (UNITED) launched the United Impact Fund as part of its global response initiative called PRISM (Pandemic Response through Innovation & Scientific Methodology) to assist the most vulnerable communities in the US and in Africa with technology, healthcare and humanitarian solutions.
The fund enables the distribution of food and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to highly impacted Black families and communities; the deployment of low-cost and free mobile Internet access in remote areas; and the implementation of an e-learning platform to support African students.
UNITED is also collaborating with the California Health Medical Reserve Corps to launch a mobile laboratory unit that will significantly accelerate testing capacity in at-risk neighborhoods both in the US and in Africa.
