Mobile Health Clinic
CER’s mobile health clinic, which works out of a land-cruiser, has operated for more than 10 years. The clinic is staffed by a government paid nurse with 4 CER staff and visits CER supported villages weekly. The health programme aims to support basic health care at community level through an immunisation program, maternity and post-natal care and management of injuries and diseases. An additional focus is building awareness of simple health care principles within the communities CER supports and the development of community health programmes to attack malnutrition and infant and maternal mortality. Funds from Australia have enabled the payment of salaries of Timorese Health Workers employed by CER to provide medical assistance in local area clinics and the provision of medical supplies.
