Description The proposed project will support the Myanmar Ministry of Health and Sports (MOHS) to enhance capacity for prevention and treatment services for non-communicable diseases (NCDs), particularly cancers. NCDs are the major causes of mortality and morbidity in Myanmar and a complex development challenge with close links to poverty, labor productivity, and equity. Addressing the existing bottlenecks in NCD response will contribute to promoting Myanmar's economic and social inclusion, closing disparities in income and non-income poverty and achieving progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy The project aligns with Myanmar Sustainable Development Plan (2018 2030) and the Asian Development Bank's (ADB's) Strategy 2030, particularly the key operational priorities of (i) addressing remaining poverty and reducing inequalities, and (ii) accelerating progress in gender equality. It is also in line with Myanmar Country Partnership Strategy (2017 2021). Three components are proposed: (i) strategy planning and coordinated implementation for NCDs response strengthened; (ii) health promotion and prevention of NCDs improved; and (iii) NCDs diagnosis and treatment capacity enhanced.
Impact Progress made towards achieving SDG Target 3.4: reducing by one-third premature mortality from NCDs through prevention and treatment, promote mental health and wellbeing; and Myanmar Sustainable Development Plan (2018 2030) Pillar 3 Goal 4, Strategy 4.2.9. Control and combat NCDs
