Saint Lucia Urges Taiwan’s Inclusion in World Health Assembly

Saint Lucia has urged the World Health Organization (WHO) to allow Taiwan’s participation in the upcoming World Health Assembly (WHA), The Saint Lucia Times reported Saturday.

The United Nations agency will, in less than three weeks’ time, open its annual health summit in Geneva. However, media reports say it’s not clear whether Taiwan will be there. It’s because Beijing sees Taiwan and mainland China as part of one country.

As a result, Beijing objects to Taipei being treated like a separate nation. This includes being allowed to participate in international organizations reserved for countries.

But Saint Lucia is backing Taiwan’s participation at the WHA.

Health Minister Mary Isaac noted that Taiwan has been a successful model in the global fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.

Isaac said Taiwan has successfully managed the spread. But she observed that Taiwan has also helped other countries, including Saint Lucia, to combat the outbreak.

According to Isaac, it is time to include Taiwan in the global efforts of the World Health Organisation to fight COVID-19.

“It is time to let Taiwan help,” she declared.
