The Asia Regional Health Cluster (ARHC) was established in 2018 for efficient delivery of grants and funds management, and the provision of quality pharmaceuticals and medical equipment.  The ARHC aims to significantly impact the targets of UN Sustainable Development Goal #3 on good health and well being by expanding the population benefitting from UNOPS-managed health-related engagements across the Asia Region. 

The ARHC portfolio manages the Principal Recipient (PR) Programme of the Global Fund to fight HIV/AIDS, Tuberculosis (TB) and Malaria in Asia. The Global Fund, which has been providing financial support to the Greater Mekong Sub-Region for malaria programs since 2003, has selected UNOPS as a PR, responsible for delivering the targets set out in the grant agreements, in collaboration with selected sub-recipients (SRs) from the National Programmes, international and local non-governmental organizations and United Nations agencies from five countries. In 2020, UNOPS-PR was tasked with additional role to manage Global Fund’s Covid-19 Response Mechanism (known as C19RM) that supports Covid-19 control and containment activities and measures to mitigate the impact of Covid-19 on HIV/AIDS, TB and Malaria Programmes in Myanmar.
