According to the bank document, 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).
The project outcome is expected to improve the access to NCDs prevention and treatment services, particularly for cancers

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF ADB
The Accountability Mechanism is an independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who believe they are likely to be, or have been, adversely affected by an Asian Development Bank-financed project. If you submit a complaint to the Accountability Mechanism, they may investigate to assess whether the Asian Development Bank is following its own policies and procedures for preventing harm to people or the environment. You can learn more about the Accountability Mechanism and how to file a complaint at: http://www.adb.org/site/accountability-mechanism/main
