About Us

Project Plus One (PP1) takes a modern approach to an old disease: tuberculosis. This treatable disease runs rampant in Timor-Leste, a small, impoverished country in Southeast Asia. Through our partnership with its largest free healthcare center, Bairo Pite Clinic, we aid the treatment of active TB in adults and its prevention in hundreds of vulnerable children a year.
