MDA Launch

Ministry of Health (MoH) Timor-Leste in collaboration with World Health Organization (WHO) Country Office for Timor-Leste with funding support from the Korean International Cooperation Agency (KOICA) launched the programme for preventing and eliminating Neglected Tropical Diseases (NTD) on 7th February in Dili. The launch was followed by a workshop for media informing them about implementation of Round 2 of Mass Drug Administration for lymphatic filariasis (LF) which was attended by both electronic media and newspapers. In the coming days, we are going to share the experiences of a number of healthcare professionals and senior officials, who will explain why this programme is important for a healthy and prosperous Timor-Leste.
