Community Partners International (CPI) is a U.S. 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization working for nearly 20 years to address the health needs of Myanmar's underserved populations, particularly in conflict-affected, low-resource and remote areas. We have long-standing and trusted partnerships with national and local health organizations and together we share a deep commitment to working with and for the people of Myanmar.
Our team includes health professionals, university faculty, educators and technical specialists with expertise in public health and clinical care, grants management, civil society strengthening, and organizational development.
Operating out of our main office in Yangon we serve Myanmar's diverse communities with representation in Nay Pyi Taw and field presence in Hpa-An, Kyainseikgyi, Myawaddy, Myitkyina, and on the Thailand-Myanmar border. Our U.S. office in Berkeley, CA, supports Myanmar country operations.
In 2016, CPI began to support local organizations in Bangladesh as part of the first phase of expansion in Southeast Asia. We are rapidly scaling up our operations in Cox's Bazar to meet the needs of refugees displaced by ongoing violence in Northern Rakhine State, Myanmar.
Our Mission: Build thriving communities in Southeast Asia through equitable access to quality services for health and social welfare.
We achieve our mission through partnerships that are driven by local organizations using contextually appropriate, evidence-based approaches.
Our Vision: Communities in Southeast Asia have the resources, capacity and information necessary to meet their own health, learning and development needs.
