Despite the fact that Taiwan contributes to global health and the prevention of communicable diseases, Taiwan has been prevented from joining the World Health Organization or even observing during the World Health Assembly the past two years. Taiwan’s lack of international space on health issues impedes the valuable transfer of knowledge among practitioners and prevents others from fully benefiting from its advancements in the medical field. To better understand and appreciate the value of Taiwan’s contribution to global health, the panel featured two practitioners in the medical field: Dr. I-Lin Hsu from National Chung Keng University in Tainan, Taiwan; and, Judy (Shiou-Chu) Wang from Management Sciences for Health. Dr. I-Lin Hsu presented on Taiwan’s role in disaster relief around the world, and his work specifically in trauma care and setting up long-term, coordinated trauma response systems in countries such as Kenya, Myanmar, and Nepal. Ms. Wang spoke about her experience in Taiwan Medical Missions for supporting pharmaceutical supply and improving medicine use in Guinea-Bissau and Malawi, and how those missions contributed to WHO agenda in availability of and accessibility to medicines, rational use of medicines, and antimicrobial resistance containment. In addition, our two technical experts were joined by Erika Elvander, Director for Asia and the Pacific, Office of Global Affairs (OGA), U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS); and Dr. Daniel Lu, Director of the Health Division at the Taipei Economic and Cultural Representative Office (TECRO).
