Timor-Leste is a country in Australasia with a population of 1 million people and a life expectancy at birth of 63 years (males) and 65 years (females). Timor-Leste is one of the youngest countries (with South Sudan) supported in this Partnership as it became independent only in 2002. A National Health Sector Coordination Committee serves as a forum for the Ministry of Health, development partners and other stakeholders to discuss health policies and challenges in the health sector and to oversee the implementation of projects and programmes guided by National Health Sector Strategic Plan 2011-2030. The activities supported by the EU/LUX-WHO Partnership cover some of the key health sector priorities as identified through a multitude of discussions with major resource persons at the MoH as well as important development partners.
