Taiwan’s first overseas medical mission was initiated in 1962, when medics were dispatched to Libya to raise the standards of medical facilities at a military hospital. In the following years, Taiwan went on to provide long-term medical assistance across the continent, including Liberia, Niger, Central African Republic, Guinea Bissau, Burkina Faso, Chad, Malawi, Swaziland and São Tomé and Príncipe.

Nowadays, the TaiwanICDF continues to provide long-term medical assistance by coordinating clinical resources at Taiwanese hospitals and encouraging their participation in our work. We also initiated our program of Mobile Medical Missions (MMMs) in 2006, which has proven to be a highly flexible and successful method of delivering medical care throughout our partner countries.

In order to improve the capability of medical speciality and achieve the goal of technique transfer, as well as fit in with international assistance change, the Mobile Medical Mission transformed itself to “Medical Mission” in 2012. Medical Mission work with local medical professionals and offering clinical training, demonstrations, and technical exchanges in 8 countries in Pacific Ocean.
