TaiwanICDF to Hold Forum on 2016 International Public Health and Medical Assistance Practice

To echo the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) announced by the United Nations, the International Cooperation and Development Fund (TaiwanICDF) will host the 2016 International Public Health and Medical Assistance Practice Forum, which will take place at the Institute of Diplomacy and International Affairs, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Republic of China (Taiwan), on October 17, 2016. The event is aimed at strengthening public- private partnerships, enhancing the effectiveness of existing collaborations and exploring opportunities for future cooperation.

With public-private partnerships as the overarching theme, the forum will focus on three core topics: Preparation of Maternal and Child Health Project, Appraisal and Inception of Chronic and Non-Communicable Diseases Prevention and Control Project and Implementation of Health Information Management System Promotion Project. Six representatives from either public or private hospitals who joined TaiwanICDF missions will share their experiences. The discussions and exchanges that take place at the event will also demonstrate Taiwan’s support and participation in international cooperation on emerging global issues including disease prevention and research.

The TaiwanICDF has acted as a platform for the integration of international medical assistance resources since 2005 and has been cooperating with health institutions continually. In addition, the TaiwanICDF has invited public and private medical centers, regional hospitals and universities to join the Healthcare Personnel Training Program and projects in public health and medicine. In 2016, there are nine public health and medical projects under implementation, appraisal and preparation with support from eight hospitals and the Ministry of National Defense-Medical Affairs Bureau, and 26 healthcare personnel from 17 countries undergoing training provided by 15 hospitals in Taiwan.
