UNOPS Myanmar

Myanmar is one of UNOPS’ leading offices in Asia, acting as Fund manager for three of the largest development programmes in the country, namely the Access to Health Fund (Access), the Livelihood and Food Security Trust Fund (LIFT) and the Joint Peace Fund (JPF). In addition, UNOPS is Principal Recipient for the Global Fund in Myanmar and for the Global Fund’s regional artemisinin-resistance initiative targeting drug resistant malaria in the greater Mekong sub-region. UNOPS provides procurement, infrastructure and project management services to a wide range of organizations in the country, including the Government of Myanmar, international development partners, other UN agencies, NGOs and INGOs. UNOPS plays a critical role in ensuring that the quality of services provided to its partners meets stringent requirements of speed, efficiency and cost effectiveness.

Access to Health Fund

The Access to Health Fund is a multi-donor USD 215 million Fund supported by the United Kingdom, Sweden, Switzerland, and the USA. The Fund was designed in 2018 and started operations in 2019 to provide support for health needs in Myanmar.  

The Access to Health Fund focuses on improving access to health services for vulnerable populations, mainly in Myanmar’s conflict-affected areas. It will do so through supporting Township Health Departments and Ethnic Health providers, and promoting integrated delivery of MNCH, Nutrition, TB and Malaria services.  Similarly to its predecessor the 3MDG Fund, Access to Health will continue supporting health system strengthening through multiple direct grants to National Programs and State Health Departments, as well as investments in Ethnic Health Organisations.
