In 2008, the FPCD inspired the Monaco Red Cross to support a maternity clinic to be built in Samé, Timor-Leste. This landmark project is named the Prince Rainier III Maternity Clinic and has become the model for the government of Timor-Leste’s National Development Plan. The community celebrated the birth of its first two babies born at the clinic during a one-year anniversary. It has significantly improved maternal health access and decreased mortality rates in mothers and newborn children. The partnership with the Government of Timor-Leste Ministry of Health was critical to the success of this clinic. This project is an example of a best practice model for a maternity clinic (with a milestone of 1000 newborns reached in a little over a year).
