    • Through the UHC Partnership, WHO has been working since 2011 to support Timor-Leste’s efforts to
      strengthen its health system. At the time of the first confirmed case of COVID-19 Timor-Leste had no identified isolation and quarantine facilities, limited surveillance capacity and had just initiated in-country testing for COVID-19. Swift action from the Ministry of Health decisively transformed its fragile health system and prevented COVID-19 from reaching communities.
