A train­ing pro­gram aimed at cul­ti­vat­ing pro­fes­sional med­i­cal per­son­nel from Tai­wan’s part­ner coun­tries and im­prov­ing the qual­ity of med­i­cal ser­vices in th­ese ally na­tions kicked off ear­lier this week, the Tai­wan In­ter­na­tional Co­op­er­a­tion and Devel­op­ment Fund (ICDF,

) has an­nounced. The pro­gram en­ti­tled “Health­care Per­son­nel Train­ing Pro­gram” was of­fi­cially launched at a cer­e­mony at the ICDF’s head­quar­ters in Taipei on Wed­nes­day, said Chen Ai-chen ( ), deputy sec­re­tarygen­eral of the ICDF.

Joined by 18 trainees from five of the R.O.C.’s diplo­matic al­lies, namely Tu­valu, Solomon Is­lands, Mar­shal Is­lands, Paraguay and Burk­ina Faso, th­ese med­i­cal per­son­nel will un­dergo one to three months of med­i­cal train­ing in Tai- wan at se­lected part­ner med­i­cal in­sti­tutes, she said.

“The pro­gram is aimed at shar­ing Tai­wan’s abun­dant clin­i­cal knowl­edge, ex­pe­ri­ence and cut­tingedge med­i­cal prac­tices with our part­ner coun­tries,” she said.

With their ed­u­ca­tion and train­ing in Tai­wan, th­ese trainees can pass down their knowl­edge and pro­fes­sional skills to their home coun­tries and im­prove the qual­ity of med­i­cal ser­vices there once they re­turn, she noted.

In the on­go­ing pro­gram, trainees are be­ing sent to six part­ners for train­ing, namely Chung Shan Med­i­cal Uni­ver­sity Hos­pi­tal, Kaoh­si­ung Med­i­cal Uni­ver­sity ChungHo Me­mo­rial Hos­pi­tal, Taipei Med­i­cal Uni­ver­sity- Shuang Ho Hos­pi­tal, Cathay Gen­eral Hos­pi­tal, Mackay Me­mo­rial and Hos­pi­tal, Fooyin Uni­ver­sity, ac­cord­ing to the ICDF.
