UNOPS mission is to serve people in need by expanding the ability of the United Nations, governments and other partners to manage projects, infrastructure and procurement in a sustainable and efficient manner.

Within these three core areas of expertise, UNOPS provides its partners with advisory, implementation and transactional services, with projects ranging from building schools and hospitals, to procuring goods and services and training local personnel. UNOPS works closely with governments and communities to ensure increased economic, social and environmental sustainability for the projects we support, with a focus on developing national capacity.

Working in some of the world’s most challenging environments, our vision is to advance sustainable implementation practices in development, humanitarian and peacebuilding contexts, always satisfying or surpassing partner expectations.


With over 7,000 personnel spread across 80 countries, UNOPS offers its partners the logistical, technical and management knowledge they need, wherever they need it. A flexible structure and global reach means we can quickly respond to our partners' needs, while offering the benefits of economies of scale.

The 2014 Ebola outbreak is the largest in history and the first in West Africa. In mid-2014, the Governments of the three most affected countries, Sierra Leone, Liberia and Guinea, declared a state of emergency and implemented a number of management measures to contain and control the outbreak, which are still continuing. The international donor community, the United Nations, non-governmental organizations and other health sector actors have partnered with the Ministry of Health and Sanitation to implement programmes to stop the spread of the disease. As part of this effort, and to assist with Sierra Leone’s transition to the Ebola recovery phase, UNOPS is providing infrastructure services to improve the safety and functionality of hospitals across the country.
