Improving Child Health in Timor-Leste
USAID/BASICS and IMMUNIZATIONbasics jointly implemented Timor-Leste Asisténsia Integradu Saúde (TAIS or Timor-Leste Integrated Maternal and Child Health Care Project). Begun in mid-2005, TAIS provided technical support to the Ministry of Health to expand effective, proven newborn and child health interventions throughout Timor-Leste. Core interventions included malaria prevention, nutrition and micronutrient care, Integrated Management of Childhood Illnesses (IMCI), Essential Newborn Care, Healthy Timing and Spacing of Pregnancy, and immunization for vaccine-preventable childhood diseases. TAIS worked to build capacity at all levels in the Ministry of Health, but focused primarily on improving services at the district, sub-district, and community levels.
