The Bairo Pite Clinic, was created following a merger between the Bairo Pite Clinic and the Hospital of Hope, is an in-country partner of the Australian international aid organisation, The Australian Foundation for the Peoples of Asia and the Pacific (AFAP).

Today BPC remains one of the most highly visited healthcare providers in the country.

Every day we:

  • see an average of 300 outpatients

  • care for for 50 inpatients

  • facilitate 34 births

Our patients are cared for by 64 Timorese staff, 3 permanent international volunteers and one paid international staff member.

In addition to this there are a number of visiting international medical students and specialists who volunteer their time and skill.

Dr Dan Murphy’s vision and tireless commitment has resulted in the BPC becoming a major contributor to healthcare services in Timor-Leste with patients travelling from all corners of the country to receive essential healthcare. While heavily dependent on donations from individuals and organisations, it is this commitment to provide continuous, reliable, free healthcare to the people of Timor-Leste, often during arduous circumstances and with little or no additional support that has earned this humble yet essential service national and international recognition.
