TaiwanICDF Launches Two Training Programs Set to Build Professional Medical Capacity

To assist its partner countries in building professional medical capacity, this year’s second round of training for the TaiwanICDF’s Healthcare Personnel Training Program will get under way on September 17. Meanwhile, as part its objective of combining its training and project operations, the organization is also holding the year’s second round of system hardware operations, maintenance and troubleshooting courses for its Strengthening the Management of HIV/AIDS, Tuberculosis and Hypertension among Mobile Populations in Southern Africa Project from September 8 to October 16. As part of these two training programs, nine participants from St. Kitts and Nevis, Honduras, Fiji and Malawi are being posted to a number of cooperating medical institutions – including Taipei Veterans General Hospital, Taipei Medical University Shuang-Ho Hospital, Mackay Memorial Hospital and Pingtung Christian Hospital – to undertake a range of professional training over six to eight weeks.

In addition to studying the practical operations of Taiwan’s health care system and raising their professional capacity, after completing their training and returning home, participants will continue to exploit their professional medical knowledge, techniques and experience by serving as seed teachers, training local medical staff and improving the quality of local health services.

The TaiwanICDF has operated the Healthcare Personnel Training Program since 2005, to date bringing 332 medical personnel to Taiwan for training. In 2012, the organization also began to introduce Taiwan-based training for medical personnel to the content of certain public health projects, strengthening cooperation with partner countries in public health and medicine. To date, 32 such medical personnel have been brought to Taiwan for training.
