Executing Agency: Taiwan Medical Mission in the Kingdom of Swaziland
Implementation Arrangement: Dispatched medical manpower long-term stationed in Mbabane Governmental Hospital to provide medical services, assistant establishment of hospital operating system, provide bed-side training to local medical workers and develop medical human resources in order to upgrade the capacity and service quality in hospital.
Project Performance: This program addressed the lack of local health care-related human resources and the poor quality of medical services in Swaziland, providing some of the specialist medical services needed by the community by stationing Taiwanese medical professionals at a Taiwan Medical Mission. Implementation results indicate that the program was a great success: More than 20,000 patients benefited directly from services provided, while the medical training programs and research conducted by mission members either for or alongside Swazi counterparts from the health ministry, local hospitals and medical institutions had a significant, long-term impact in building capacity in local health care-related human resources and in strengthening the quality of medical services available within the country.
