North Okkalapa Township (Burmese: မြောက်ဥက္ကလာပ မြို့နယ်, pronounced [mjauʔ ʔouʔkəlàpa̰ mjo̰nɛ̀]) is located in the eastern part of Yangon. The township comprises 19 wards, and shares borders with Hlegu township and Mingaladon township in the north, North Dagon township in the east, Mingaladon township and Mayangon township in the west, and Kamayut township, and Mayangon township and South Okkalapa township in the south. North Okkalapa was one of the satellite towns established in 1959. Today, it is a firmly established part of the city, albeit with nominal access to the city's electricity grid and sewer system. Like most areas in the city, especially in working class neighborhoods like North Okkalapa, night-time electricity is available once every two or three days.
The township has 30 primary schools, seven middle schools and five high schools. It is also home to one of the most selective universities in the nation: the University of Medicine 2, Yangon, and the University of Pharmacy, Yangon.
The North Okkalapa General Hospital, an affiliated teaching hospital of the University of Medicine 2, is the major hospital for the township and vicinity.
