Background Information - Job-specific

UNOPS is an operational arm of the United Nations, helping a range of partners implement $1 billion worth of aid and development projects every year.  UNOPS mission is to expand the capacity of the UN system and its partners to implement peace building, humanitarian and development operations that matter for people in need.

The UNOPS Myanmar Operations Hub (MMOH) under the UNOPS Asia, Middle East, Europe & Oceania Office (AEMO) has been established to support, develop and oversee UNOPS’ portfolio of programmes and projects in Myanmar and to ensure that synergies between programmes and projects are effectively developed. MMOH plays a critical role in ensuring quality services to UNOPS partners that meet stringent requirements of speed, efficiency and cost effectiveness.

In 2013 MMOH has been selected by the GF and the Regional Steering Committee (RSC) for the Regional Artemisinin Resistance Containment Initiative (RAI) as single Regional Principal Recipient. The RAI is a three year project and covers five Mekong countries most affected by artemisinin resistance: Cambodia, Lao PDR, Myanmar, Cambodia, Thailand and Vietnam.

UNOPS established its Cambodia office in 2013 and has been appointed as Principal Recipient for the Global Fund Malaria SSF grant and later endorsed for the NFM grant which is currently under negotiation with the Global Fund. In 2015 UNOPS Regional Office decided to consolidate its GF PR programmes in the GMS to ensure consistent operations of all PR programmes, to benefit from economies of scale and secure quality of programming, offering best value for the GF. AEMO had placed the Cambodia GF programme under the coordination and supervision of the Programme Director PR-UNOPS Myanmar. This arrangement is result of the effort to consolidate UNOPS services to its partners and clients in the GMS countries. The position is to manage the Cambodia operations of the PR.
