Strengthening Public Health Capacity to Respond to Myanmar’s Disease Transition is a project jointly implemented by HelpAge International, University of Public Health (UPH), Yangon, University of Medicine 2, Yangon, and Thammasat University, Thailand. This project is supported by the European Union as part of its Supporting Public Health Institutes Programme under the Investing in People Initiative. The objective of this project is to strengthen the UPH and wider health stakeholders to support evidence-based policy and improved health services, particularly in preparation for the transition towards non-communicable diseases in Myanmar. The project builds national evidence, knowledge and collaborations in order to help integrate NCDs and mental health into the mainstream of national health policy dialogue and service delivery, and also works for strengthening the institutional capacity.
