MATCH TL will strengthen diagnosis and surveillance of infectious diseases in Timor-Leste. It will work closely alongside the Timor-Leste Ministry of Health to improve access to, and quality of, laboratory diagnostic testing for Malaria, Tuberculosis (TB), COVID-19, and HIV (MATCH-TL).

Aims and objectives:
  • To strengthen the capacity of the National Health Laboratory (NHL) to operate as a reference laboratory, offering quality assured diagnostic testing for malaria, TB, COVID-19 and HIV and opportunistic infections, using a combination of culture, serology and molecular based testing.
  • To improve access to decentralised rapid diagnostic testing for TB, COVID-19 and HIV in Timor-Leste, with prompt reporting of results, in a supervised laboratory network coordinated by the NHL.
  • To provide contemporary epidemiological data based on methodologically sound laboratory studies, that can be used to inform policy decisions and public health responses to malaria, TB, COVID-19 and HIV in Timor-Leste.
