About MPPR

Who we are

Myanmar Partners in Policy and Research (MPPR) is a locally registered organization established in 2013 in Yangon that specializes in health-related research, advocacy, and project development. MPPR operates with the conviction that all people, regardless of who they are and where they live, have the right to quality health services, to exist free from fear and stigma, and to lead the lives they choose. We have partnered with the government, communities, and international non-governmental organizations to remove barriers to critical sexual, reproductive, and maternal and child health services. Together, we strive to access to health services, promote healthy pregnancies and delivery, save the lives of women and children, and stop the spread of new HIV infections. Our work strives to help women, men, and young people in Myanmar have more options in life and are able to choose their own paths.

Mission & Vision

Together with our partners, MPPR strives to improve sexual & reproductive health care and family planning (SRH/FP) services and ensure all pregnancies are wanted. By doing so, MPPR helps stop the spread of new sexually transmitted infections and unsafe abortions, and save the lives of women and children.
