We are a business-led organization acting to engage companies into social and environmental initiatives in Myanmar.
Stakeholders from business, government and civil society proactively work together, using their respective strengths to ethically advance society’s needs and planetary consciousness while driving for economic growth.
Who We Are
MBCA was founded by businessman Mr. Martin Pun in 2002. Today, our 7 offices country-wide mobilize businesses to engage with health, social and environmental causes.
We have over 120 staff members, including 12 licensed physicians, 10 trainers, 16 health communication officers and 75 peer educators from diverse ethnic groups.
Our 2 free clinics offer general practitioner services, confidential HIV testing and counseling; we serve an average 200 people per day.
Since 2003, MBCA has evolved to be a leader that is creative in assisting various UN agencies, INGOs and NGOs to reach communities in need. MBCA is proud to co-ordinate and collaborate between businesses, government agencies, and rural community organizations.
A natural catalyst for private-public partnerships
MBCA actively promotes and assists in organizing business coalitions across Myanmar. These are owned and managed by groups of businessmen who govern the organization, and promote societal values in the communities they serve.
Our work combines the practicality of the Business and the societal and environmental values of the non-profit sector. We aim to remain close to the people we serve and understand their needs.
Our main projects in the past years have included:
We are an implementing partner for the Ministry of Health’s National Strategic Plan on HIV/ AIDS.
