Taiwan and International Organizations: WHO
Disease does not stop at the border, as the COVID-19 pandemic has demonstrated. It is therefore unconscionable that China plays politics with the lives of the people of Taiwan, of the people of China and of people around the world by blocking U.S. efforts to include Taiwan in the World Health Organization (WHO) – particularly in light of Taiwan’s extraordinary performance during this pandemic. Taiwan is prevented from contributing its expertise to the WHO either. How can responsible nations of the world conclude that the 23 million people of Taiwan should be denied information and experience that could benefit their and the rest of the world’s health and well-being?
- Other important international venues where Taiwan’s expertise is missing and sorely needed are the ICAO and INTERPOL.
