Dr Chris Fenton was in General Practice in Rose Bay in Sydney for 25 years. He has worked in Medical Director roles since 2007 and was Medical Director for PNG for International SOS 2009-2011. His interest in Timor-Leste began in 1999 during the lead up to the independence referendum.
Since 2006, Dr Fenton has worked on developing a not-for-profit NGO under the name of Hospital of Hope with the aim of providing hospital-based care in Timor-Leste.
Having assembled a team of motivated professionals and liaised extensively with the Timor-Leste Government and the Ministry of Health, in 2012 the Hospital of Hope merged with the existing Bairo Pite Clinic.
Working along-side Dr Dan and the team of professionals, Dr Fenton’s aim for BPC is to make the greatest possible contribution to healthcare for the people of Timor-Leste.
