UNODC Sub-Programme on Anti-Corruption for Southeast Asia aims to more effectively prevent, raise awareness of, detect, investigate and prosecute corruption. The Sub-Programme works with Member States in the region to enhance the capacities of their national anti-corruption bodies through the provision of technical assistance and training programmes. It covers 11 countries in the region including 10 ASEAN countries (Brunei Darussalam, Cambodia, Indonesia, Lao PDR, Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam), as well as Timor-Leste. The overall scope of the programme is to support the implementation of the United Nations Convention against Corruption (UNCAC), which entered into force in 2005.
