This collaboration represents the latest in our Data for Good efforts, and our latest project in support of the Global Goals of the United Nations. In the past, we have helped the UN’s International Organization for Migration (IOM) respond to humanitarian crises following earthquakes in Nepal and Pakistan, as well as for Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines.

For SAS, using data for good to address issues such as poverty, health, human rights, education and the environment is part of our mission. From child welfare to combating opioid abuse, from behavioral health to providing better educational opportunities for children, the power of data to improve the world is profound.

We know that social engagement and awareness is critical. So what can you do? Listen and subscribe to the podcasts, download GatherIQ to explore and share data that help find solutions. Working together we can help shape the future of the only planet we have.
