The Democratic Republic of Timor-Leste (formerly East Timor) has become the 192nd member state of the World Health Organization (WHO). Health minister Dr Rui Maria de Araujo has announced that the government's main healthcare priorities are reducing the country's high maternal and infant mortality (at up to an estimated 95 deaths per 1,000 live births) and tackling communicable diseases, including HIV and other STDs, pneumonia, tuberculosis, malaria, dengue, and diarrhoeal conditions. The WHO established an office in the capital Dili in 1999.
