CPME Statement : Call in favour of WHO observer status for TaiwanComments Off on CPME Statement : Call in favour of WHO observer status for Taiwan

CPME Statement

“Considering that over 21 million people are living in Taiwan, it is medically inconceivable not to have them represented in the work of the World Health Organisation (WHO)” insists Dr Bernhard Grewin, CPME President.

Without taking a stand on the legal status of the island, Taiwanese people should be able to work with and receive support from WHO.

CPME strongly supports repeated calls of the World Medical Association to have Taiwan granted WHO observer status.

CPME urges its members to call on their national governments to advocate this observer status of Taiwan to WHO.

CPME is a membership driven association with members from the enlarged EU, EFTA and the wider Europe. The CPME represents over 2 million doctors within the enlarged EU/EEC. CPME’s aim is to promote the highest standards for public health and medical practice at the EU level.
