Improving access to health by providing rural community health services

After Independence, the Government of Timor-Leste faced huge challenges. About 80% of health infrastructure had been destroyed, leaving almost no equipment and facilities; many of the professional workers fled the country after 1999. Health services, in many parts of the country, were almost non-existent. There is still a long way to go and there are many challenges ahead to reduce malnutrition, maternal mortality rates, and to increase quality healthcare for all Timorese.
