Mission: Taiwan Technical Mission in the Republic of Nicaragua

The Taiwan Technical Mission in Nicaragua has contributed to the prevention of swine flu in Nicaragua. A summary of a local news coverage is as follows:

The government of Nicaragua held a ceremony at Cacique on May 13, 2011 to officially announce that Nicaragua is free of swine flu. The ceremony was attended for Taiwan by Ambassador Wu Chin-mu, who said that Taiwan has donated more than US$7.6 million to help fight the virus in Central America, with phenomenal results in many areas.

Swine flu, a virus endemic in pigs, has not been observed in Nicaragua for more than five years, thereby enabling the country to be declared a non-affected region.
