Timor-Leste became the first new sovereign state of the 21st Century in 2002, following 30 years of occupation by Indonesia. At that time, Timor-Leste experienced some of the worst health standards and life expectancy in the Asia-Pacific region, including diseases and conditions which have been eradicated in Australia and elsewhere.
Since independence, there has been a massive improvement in both healthcare and life expectancy, with a combination of local infrastructure and aid funded programs. Nonetheless, there are still significant gaps to be addressed, particularly in maternal and early childhood (neonatal) healthcare
In November 2017 the Order of Malta Medical Clinic opened in Dili and offers free basic primary out of hospital medical care and health education to financially disadvantaged Timorese. Thousands of Timorese have already benefited from the services provided.
The Order of Malta Clinic is entirely funded by donations. Learn more about the Order of Malta Medical Clinic by visiting its website www.orderofmaltaclinic.org.tl
