H. R. 1794
Concerning the participation of Taiwan in the World Health Organization
H. R. 1794
Concerning the participation of Taiwan in the World Health Organization
Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the
United States of America in Congress assembled,
SECTION 1. CONCERNING THE PARTICIPATION OF TAIWAN IN THE WORLD HEALTH
(a) Findings.--The Congress makes the following findings:
(1) Good health is a basic right for every citizen of the
world and access to the highest standards of health information
and services is necessary to help guarantee this right.
(2) Direct and unobstructed participation in international
health cooperation forums and programs is therefore crucial,
especially with today's greater potential for the cross-border
spread of various infectious diseases such as AIDS.
(3) The World Health Organization (WHO) set forth in the
first chapter of its charter the objective of attaining the
highest possible level of health for all people.
(4) In 1977, the World Health Organization established
``Health For All By The Year 2000'' as its overriding priority
and reaffirmed that central vision with the initiation of its
``Health For All'' renewal process in 1995.
(5) Taiwan's population of 21,000,000 people is larger than
that of three-fourths of the member states already in the World
(6) Taiwan's achievements in the field of health are
substantial, including one of the highest life expectancy
levels in Asia, maternal and infant mortality rates comparable
to those of western countries, the eradication of such
infectious diseases as cholera, smallpox, and the plague, and
the first to be rid of polio and provide children with free
hepatitis B vaccinations.
(7) The World Health Organization was unable to assist
Taiwan with an outbreak of enterovirus 71 which killed 70
Taiwanese children and infected more than 1,100 Taiwanese
children in 1998.
(8) In recent years Taiwan has expressed a willingness to
assist financially or technically in WHO-supported
international aid and health activities, but has ultimately
been unable to render such assistance.
(9) The World Health Organization allows observers to
participate in the activities of the organization.
(10) The United States, in the 1994 Taiwan Policy Review,
declared its intention to support Taiwan's participation in
appropriate international organizations.
(11) In light of all of the benefits that Taiwan's
participation in the World Health Organization could bring to
the state of health not only in Taiwan, but also regionally and
globally, Taiwan and its 21,000,000 people should have
appropriate and meaningful participation in the World Health
(b) Report.--Not later than January 1, 2000, the Secretary of State
shall submit a report to the Congress on the efforts of the Secretary
to fulfill the commitment made in the 1994 Taiwan Policy Review to more
actively support Taiwan's participation in international organizations,
in particular the World Health Organization (WHO).
Passed the House of Representatives October 4, 1999.
