Taiwan will seek to garner more support from other nations at the 2017 World Health
Summit, scheduled for October in Taipei. That’s the word from the health minister, Chen Shih-chung, on Friday.
Chen recently led a delegation to Geneva during the World Health Assembly and held 59 bilateral meetings and two technical meetings with representatives from other nations. That’s after Taiwan was barred from attending from this year’s WHA due to political pressure from China.
Chen told Radio Taiwan International on Friday that his efforts led to multiple nations voicing their support for Taiwan to participate in the WHA. He said the health ministry will continue to garner support from other nations during the World Health Summit in October. [FULL STORY]
