UNOPS was selected by the Regional Steering Committee and Global Fund to Fight Against AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria (GFATM) as a regional Principal Recipient (PR) of the Regional Artemisinin-resistance Initiative grant (RAI).  The implementation of the grant commenced in January 2014 and in November 2016, GFATM approved new funding allocations to PR-GFATM in the Greater Mekong Sub-region (Cambodia, Lao PDR, Vietnam, Myanmar and Thailand) to extend RAI into 2017, bridging the gap until the next three years funding cycle begins in 2018.  This new grant under negotiation in 2017 is known as the Regional Artemisinin-resistance Initiative for Malaria Elimination (RAI2E) 2018 – 2020.  Substantial amounts of the funds will continue to be allocated to building resilient and sustainable health systems, particularly in Myanmar, Laos and Cambodia.

UNOP delivers PR services on behalf of the Global Fund by providing health services to the communities through a versatile landscape of partnerships, working closely with the Ministries of Health (MoH) and civil society organisations as well as UN partners, providing health system strengthening services in a sustainable fashion and often times in the form of an advisor on building systems and capacities in planning, budgeting, implementation management, monitoring and evaluation, reporting, financial management, as part of the advisory services built into the Programme.      

UNOPS is PR for the Regional Artemisinin-resistance Initiative 2 - Malaria Elimination (RAI2E) grant in Lao PDR.  In order to ensure prudent financial and programmatic mechanisms, UNOPS is looking for a Programme Coordinator with expertise in programme financial management to establish a small PR-Program Management Unit (PMU) in Lao PDR MoH. 

UNOPS as Principal Recipient (PR) in Lao PDR is dedicated to building capacity.  The MOH functional teams and their programmes are used to one model of operation. PR aims to strengthen the functional teams of the Laos Principal Recipient Management Unit within the Ministry of Health.  The work of the PR with the Department of Planning and International Coordination (DPIC), Department of Finance (DOF) and Health Information Unit (HIU) will increasingly align with the Ministry of Health’s (MOH) structure, defining a mechanism to transfer capacity to line management functions of existing MoH staff.
