UNOPS has worked in Myanmar since 1996 contributing to the achievements of a range of partners, including bilateral donors, UN organizations and donor governments. Our fund management, procurement and infrastructure services support initiatives to improve health, livelihoods, rural development and agriculture across the country.

UNOPS manages some of the largest development funds in Myanmar, including the Livelihoods and Food Security Fund (LIFT), Access to Health Fund (ACCESS) and the Joint Peace Fund (JPF).

Furthermore, UNOPS is the Principal Recipient for the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria (Global Fund) in Myanmar and manages the Regional Artemisinin-Resistance Initiative Towards Elimination of Malaria (RAI2E).

UNOPS Myanmar also manages a diverse portfolio of small and medium-sized individual projects, in collaboration with other UN organizations, national and international implementing partners, and bilateral and multilateral donors.
