DIAGNOSTIC CENTRE

A Diagnostic Centre will be a further step towards better healthcare in Timor-Leste. The quality of the hospitals and the diagnostic facilities is rather inadequate. In addition the number and quality of the medical and technical stuff is insufficient – specifically in the remote areas. Thus, only a small part of the population receives good healthcare today. A Diagnostic Centre will be a further step towards better healthcare in East-Timor. Presently the quality of the hospitals and the diagnostic facilities are rather inadequate. In addition the number and qualification of the medical and technical staff is insufficient – specially in remote areas. Thus, only a small part of the population can presently access and enjoy adequate healthcare.
 


The Timor foundation is in negotiation with private partners and with the Ministry of Health to set up a diagnostic centre in the capital, Dili. We tune in on two goals. First, to improve the scope of diagnostics available, adopted to the needs of Timor-Leste and second, the creation of employment opportunities for medical, technical and administrative staff.

Our partner, the Professor Ernesto Morais Foundation (FPEM) is committed to promote and encourage scientific education – specially medical science. Therefore the FPEM is willing to arrange for and to suggest adequate education and training programs for Timorese physicians, these programs to take place in Portugal (Porto); after attending the programs, the physicians and technicians will then be ready to operate and manage the centre, still benefiting from advisory and coaching from Portuguese physicians and technicians.

This project shall be financially supported by the Timorese Government and by Timor Foundation.

However, our projects are looking for your support and engagement. Your decision will directly support a project, a student and/or any other human being in East- Timor.
