Tuberculosis is the leading cause of death in Timor Leste and diarrhoea is the sixth leading cause of death. Timor Leste also has one of the highest malnutrition rates among children in the world.
We support our partner to provide communities with health and nutrition education and access to clean water, latrines and healthy food. This reduces malnutrition and disease and promotes healthy living.
Last year alone, we provided over 1500 people education on preventing diarrhoea and tuberculosis.
