"Since Timor-Leste gained its independence, it has achieved significant progress in re-establishing health infrastructures and delivering basic health services such as immunizations for children which has resulted in improving child health. Nevertheless, progress toward achieving the health MDGs on maternal and child nutritional outcomes are still lagging" said Ms.
The project will directly benefit an estimated 4,470 children under the age of two and 5,503 pregnant and lactating women. In addition, it is estimated that around 70,000 indirect beneficiaries will benefit through increased knowledge and behavioral changes within their community. The project will also directly benefit around 1,000 service providers such as health promotional workers, agriculture extension workers and community nutrition coordinators through increased skills and knowledge for improving nutrition outcomes.
