Tai­wan keen on join­ing hands with In­dia for health­care

BioSpectrum (Asia) - - Regulatory News -

A Tai­wanese health del­e­ga­tion led by the Deputy Health and Wel­fare Min­is­ter vis­ited the In­dian state of Haryana and there have been re­ports of the two na­tions ex­press­ing in­ter­est in join­ing hands and work­ing to­gether for the pro­mo­tion of Asian tra­di­tional medicines. Both In­dia and Tai­wan have ex­pressed their in­ter­est in co­op­er­at­ing on sev­eral ar­eas in health­care.

In­dia is known for its Ayurvedic medicine and ex­ten­sive re­search that has been con­ducted by In­dian sci­en­tists on the same and Tai­wan has been praised for its ef­forts to sci­en­tize tra­di­tional Chi­nese medicines.

The two sides are re­port­edly ea­ger to fur­ther work on the pro­mo­tion and devel­op­ment of an­cient Asian medicine. In­dia has re­port­edly ex­pressed in­ter­est in Tai­wan’s Na­tional Health In­sur­ance, a uni­ver­sal health­care sys­tem that pro­vides com­pre­hen­sive health in­sur­ance to Tai­wan’s 23.4 mil­lion cit­i­zens and for­eign res­i­dents and its use of IC cards. The host coun­try ac­quired ex­ten­sive knowl­edge on the same dur­ing a brief­ing pro­vided by the del­e­ga­tion.

Tai­wan’s new gov­ern­ment has been mak­ing head­lines for its New South­bound Pol­icy, which in­cludes In­dia as a strate­gic lo­ca­tion due to its emerg­ing econ­omy and pop­u­la­tion size.
