About Timor-Leste

Located between Indonesia and Australia, Timor-Leste is one of the world’s newest countries, having gained independence in 2002 after decades of conflict. Its population is one of the world’s poorest, and the country is working to build its new democracy with still-nascent institutions and limited human capital. The United States is committed to helping Timor-Leste realize its development goals and emerge as a strong, regional partner.

USAID supports Timor-Leste in its efforts to build a more prosperous, healthy and democratic nation through programs that foster inclusive and sustainable economic growth, especially in the agriculture sector; improve the health of the Timorese people, particularly women and children; and strengthen the foundations of good governance.
