Media outlets representing nine of Taiwan’s diplomatic allies have sent staff to Taipei Veterans General Hospital for a look at Taiwanese medicine and the country’s medical diplomacy. The June 1 visit was arranged by the foreign ministry.
The visit included a tour of the hospital’s dialysis center. The hospital says Taiwan excels in offering quality treatment for chronic kidney disease.
Chronic kidney disease is a major health issue in St Kitts and Nevis, one of Taiwan’s Caribbean allies whose media was represented during the visit. In April, the country began sending medical staff and officials to Taipei Veterans General Hospital for training. The hospital also plans to send a consultant to St Kitts and Nevis.
