I am a medical doctor and public health professional by training and graduated from the Institute of Medicine 1 in 1990. Since 1991, I started my career with malaria research for almost 10 years and published scientific papers at international and national research conferences.  Then, I worked in Population Services International as a programme manager for malaria programme mainly working with the private sector.

 

In 2005-06, I studied at Emory University for my master degree in public health focusing in global health and did my internship at CDC malaria branch for better understanding of Global malaria context.   

In 2007, I joined to the Three Diseases Fund (3DF), the Fund management office managed by UNOPS. The job requires me to be a strong communicator between donors and implementing partners, senior government officials of Ministry of Health, and design strategic scope for funding HIV, TB and Malaria programmes, and supportive collaboration.
In 2012, the donors expanded their funding scope to wider health services for 3 diseases interventions and maternal and child health care under health system strengthening model. I provided technical inputs to the Fund Director and Fund Board to formulate a strategic vision into an operational model to work in a dynamic and complex working environment of Myanmar. I lead my team to design new programmes mainly for supporting national responses to Myanamr Artemisinin Resistant Containment malaria programme, Multidrug resistant Tuberculosis programme, Active Tuberculosis Case finding, and the prison health programme.
Since 2007 to date, I am working as a senior public health officer at the Fund management office of UNOPS.
