International Cooperation

International Cooperation

  Wanfang Hospital has engaged in international health since 2005. We has sponsored many workshops and training courses in the area of health care management, and ever dispatched medical teams to Sri Lanka, Panama, Guatemala, Laos, India, Palau, Marshall, Haiti and other diplomatic allies to offer medical service and enhance their health service capacity. In response to the government policy, we work closely with Taiwan Ministry of Health and Welfare International Healthcare Training Center (TIHTC), International Cooperation and Development Fund (Taiwan ICDF) in various international training programs for health professionals..


Diversified management Depth ploughs in Taiwan

  Wanfang Hospital launched the medical aid program to Democratic Republic of São Tomé and Príncipe in 2010. We cooperate with their health authority to conduct various programs in accordance with their needs and remarkably strengthen their health service capacity. The program was awarded with Symbol of national Quality of Taiwan in 2014 and received International Medical Excellence Award in 2016. The program was concluded. Through the period, the achievement was highly recognized by the San Tome government. We have been invited to deliver special speeches, join their national activities and received awards for many times.

  From 2017 onwards, Wanfang sends specialists to the Kingdom of Eswatini to strengthen their postgraduate medical training program in conjunction with the medical mission team from Taipei Medical University Hospital. Since there is no medical school in the Kingdom, students are sent to different countries for medical education, therefore, postgraduate training is essential for building their competence to serve domestic patients. In 2018, TMU signed another agreement with the Kingdom’s Health Ministry to offer training program for enhancing their capability in cancer prevention, diagnosis and treatment.


New Southbound Policy

  Since the inauguration of current President Tsai, the government has launched several new initiatives, one of which is the New Southbound Policy (NSP) aiming to pursue stronger partnership and promote exchange of the talents, capital, technology, culture and education with south and southeastern Asia countries. The NST also targets on identifying new direction, new driving force, new stage of economic development and creating future value for Taiwan. In response to the government policy, Wanfang has signed a memorandum of cooperation with Vietnam Guangning Provincial Health Department and Vietnam Bach Mei Hospital for enhancing their tuberculosis control program. We also participated in the global marketing activities of the TAITRA going Malaysia, Myanmar, Indonesia, Philippines in 2017. At the same time, Wanfang has received a grant from Taiwan Ministry of Health and Welfare to implement a medical and health promotion cooperation plan in Lashio City, Myanmar.
