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

Goal:

The USAID Health System Sustainability Activity in Timor-Leste is part of USAID’s Local Health System Sustainability project, a global initiative to help countries achieve sustainable, self-financed health systems and support access to universal health coverage and improve health and well-being. 


Location: 

Nationwide

Duration:

USAID Avansa Agrikultura Project
