UNODC Sub-Programme on Anti-Corruption for Southeast-Asia aims to more effectively prevent, raise awareness of, detect, investigate and prosecute corruption, and to support of the United Nations Convention Against Corruption (UNCAC). We work with Member States in the region to enhance the capacities of national anti-corruption bodies, through the provision of technical assistance, training and research. At present, the Sub-Programme covers 11 countries in the region including 10 ASEAN countries (Brunei Darussalam, Cambodia, Indonesia, Lao PDR, Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Viet Nam), as well as Timor-Leste.
