WFP Myanmar: Magway Operational Brief

Magway Region with 3.9 million, representing 7 percent of the country’s population, is located in the central part of Myanmar, bordering with Sagaing Region in the north, Mandalay Region in the east, Bago Region in the south and Rakhine and Chin States in the west. In 2003, WFP opened a sub-office in Pakkoku to provide relief food assistance to families, whose breadwinners contracted HIV/TB. At present, in cooperation with seven partners, WFP is providing food assistance to the food insecure and vulnerable populations in eight townships of Magway Region.
