Covalima Medical Program

The International Stabilisation Force (ISF) combined with the East Timor Defence Force (F-FDTL) and the East Timorese Ministry of Health to deliver critical medical support to remote villages during April.

Australian Defence Force (ADF) troops deployed on Operation ASTUTE have assisted with monthly Medical Civil Action Programs (MEDCAP) across East Timor in support of nurses, midwives and doctors operating under the F-FDTL and Ministry of Health.

Deputy Commander ISF, Colonel Garry Brosnan said the rugged Covalima district was the focus for the April program, and villagers of Ucecai have received individual medical assessments, antibiotics and primary health care education.
