Research and Maluk Timor

Maluk Timor is always very interested in discovery and research; in finding answers and solutions to clinical, social and organisational challenges, particularly those that affect the most marginalised people in Timor Leste.

The Maluk Timor clinical team takes opportunity whenever possible to engage in operational or translational research that will benefit patients.

Below are links to relevant research published by members of the Maluk Timor team in areas of TB, HIV, Rheumatic Heart Disease and other important health issues.
