Community Based Health Service

Demand for health care services is high throughout Timor-Leste. Yet the government has limited resources, especially for medical services in rural areas. Fundação Lafaek Diak realised that the establishment of community based health care was an area of need in rural areas. With this in mind Fundação Lafaek Diak established in Triloka village, District of Baucau, a community Health Clinic in the year 2006. Its operation began on February 28, 2007 after signing a Memorandum of Understanding with the Ministry of Health.
This clinic provides community-based-health care, training local community health workers, health education in the community to increase the capacity of the villagers to live their lives in a more healthy way. In 2009 Fundação Lafaek Diak received full accreditation by the Ministry of Health of Timor-Leste for Triloka clinic and its mobile clinic services.
