Health Minister Chen Shih-chung says Taiwan’s people are united behind the
government’s bid to take part as an observer in this year’s World Health Assembly (WHA). Chen was speaking Wednesday during a press conference organized by a group that backs Taiwan’s WHA observer status.
The WHA is the decision-making body of World Health Organization. It is set to hold this year’s session in Geneva from May 20-28. Though Taiwan has attended as an observer in the past, it has been barred for several years because of pressure from China.
