Motion text

That this House notes and supports the request of Taiwan RoC to be granted observer status to the World Health Organisation; also notes that this request is also supported by the United States Congress and the European Parliament; further notes that while Taiwan already has excellent health services within its country, it fully understands the aspiration of all its people and all who work in the medical profession to be fully involved in the medical developments that are taking place world-wide; further notes that to grant observer status in the World Health Organisation would allow exchanges of medical developments and progress to be fully discussed; and requests that at the forthcoming annual meeting of the World Health Assembly in Geneva the organisation gives serious consideration to this request by Taiwan RoC for observer status.
