Two-thirds of 1.17 million Timorese people still live below US$2 per day, and while child mortality rates have improved, many children under five still die of preventable and treatable diseases. High birth rates, limited family planning, and a bulging youth population places pressure on government and a weak private sector to create meaningful jobs and shore up national stability.
Through the Partnership for Human Development, Abt is supporting Timor-Leste’s goal to transition to an upper middle-income country, with a healthy, well-educated and safe population by 2030. Across health, education, sanitation, water, nutrition, gender equality, disability, and social protection, the partnership is helping the Government of Timor-Leste to reduce poverty, improve equality and expand wellbeing for coming generations of Timorese people.
