Nawnghkio, variously spelt Naunghkio, Naungcho or Nawngcho, is a town in northern Shan State, Burma. It is connected to Mandalay, Pyin U Lwin, Kyaukme, Hsipaw and Lashio by road and rail and by road to Taunggyi via National Road 43.[1][2] Asia World Company, led by Tun Myint Naing, won the contract to rebuild part of the road in 2002.[3] Originally on the Mandalay-Lashio Road, after Pyin U Lwin and before Kyaukme, Nawnghkio is on what is now the Mandalay-Muse Road, part of the Asian Highway Route 14 (AH14).[1]

Approximately 2,900 acres (12 km2) of land in the area were reclaimed and allotted to coffee growers in 1999-2000.[4]

Women of reproductive age (15-49) in Kyaukme and Nawnghkio have been targeted for improvement in reproductive health in the community in collaboration with Japan. A study mission was started in June 2004, with the project continuing for the period January 2005- December 2009.[5][6]
