Cultivating the Public Health Talents of Taiwan’s Allies: Scholarship Graduates Partner with Taiwan's Medical Community to Fight the Pandemic
The TaiwanICDF International Higher Education Scholarship Program has been dedicated to cultivating the public health talents of Taiwan’s allies for many years. To date, 510 scholarship recipients have benefited from the program and the graduates have served in government public health departments, medical institutions, and international public health organizations after returning to their countries, to assist their countries in establishing a good public health and medical environment.

In response to the outbreak of COVID-19, The TaiwanICDF Scholarship- Master’s Program in International Health of National Yang-Ming University arranged a video conference for Belizean graduate Tanisha Benjamin, a Belize Ministry of Health official, and other Belizean graduates, with Dr. Muh-Yong Yen, director of Department of Diseases Control and Prevention at Taipei City Hospital, TCG.

Through the video conference, alumni can learn about Taiwan’s experience in the prevention and treatment of SARS and COVID-19, and help Belize establish infection prevention measures in major hospitals and communities. The scholarship recipients not only learned about Taiwan’s successful public health experience, but have also continued to communicate and cooperate with Taiwan to help their own countries fight the crisis.
