Taipei, May 12 (CNA) Taiwan is part of a global health community and it will continue to contribute its expertise and experiences with the international community, despite being kept out of the upcoming World Health Assembly (WHA) meeting, President Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文) said Friday.
In an event to celebrate this year’s International Nurses Day in Taipei, Tsai thanked the nation’s medical staff for their services in the field and for safeguarding Taiwan’s health and welfare.
At a time when Taiwan has been excluded from the World Health Assembly (WHA) meeting scheduled to be held later this month in Geneva, Tsai said the island has a lot to contribute to the global health community and therefore health issues should not be politicized. [FULL STORY]
