US calls upon WHO to invite Taiwan for World Health Assembly as observer

The United States has called upon the World Health Organisation Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus to invite Taiwan to participate as an observer at the upcoming annual meeting of the World Health Assembly (WHA), saying there is no reasonable justification for Taipei’s continued exclusion from the forum.

Asserting that Global health and global health security challenges do not respect borders nor recognize political disputes, US Secretary of State Antony Blinken said that Taiwan offers valuable contributions and lessons learned from its approach to these issues and WHO leadership and all responsible nations should recognize that excluding the interests of 24 million people at the WHA serves only to imperil, not advance, our shared global health objectives. The WHA is set to hold its 74th annual meeting virtually from Geneva, Switzerland, from May 24 to June 1.
