This is the Timor-Leste Health Program 2013–2021 Concept Note. The concept note outlines the rationale and focus of the new heath program on aspects of the health system that are most likely to have an impact on the health of mothers and children. The note describes the scope and logic of the program. It also sets out principles for engagement with the Ministry of Health, development partners and internal Australian aid program partners, as well as preferred aid delivery mechanisms.
Note: the proposed scope of the program has changed since the initial concept phase. The proposed scope is now more in line with the approach outlined in the Ministry of Health Discussion Note (refer to this note for details). The proposed budget for the health program outlined in the concept note will now also be significantly less.
