Taiwan is needed for world health

By Mike Kuo 郭正光

Taiwan should do right by building a “Coalition of the Willing” to get Taiwan into the WHO — a coalition of friends and allies, such as the US, Japan, Canada and Australia — and get it to stand up against China.

Taiwan should not just apply this strategy to its WHO campaign, but also to its campaigns to join the International Civil Aviation Organization and Interpol.

After being shunned by these organizations for decades, it is time the 23 million people of Taiwan join them. They deserve it.

Mike Kuo is president of the Formosan Association for Public Affairs.
