A letter to the Prime Minister and the Members of Parliament: Call for Taiwan’s inclusion in the WHO and other international organisations

Dear Prime Minister and Members of the National Cabinet,

It is great news for Australia as we see the coronavirus curve flattening with the government’s effective response to the COVID19 pandemic. The coronavirus outbreak has reminded us of the importance of transparency, unity and cooperation between countries as we fight the global pandemic. We, the Taiwanese Association of Canberra, Australia (TACA), are grateful for Australian MPs’ earlier call for the WHO to include Taiwan. As the annual World Health Assembly (WHA) will be held in less than a week, Taiwan has not yet received its invitation to participate. We are therefore writing to request a formal proposal from Australia to support Taiwan’s participation in the WHO and other major international organisations.

In 2003, Taiwan was hit hard by the outbreak of severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS). The island was left alone to fight the infectious disease as the WHO refused to share any critical information or offer any help to Taiwan due to political pressure from the People’s Republic of China (PRC). Seventeen years later, Taiwan undertook serious preparation when the first case of the then-unknown virus was reported in China. Unable to receive cooperation and crucial information from China or the WHO, the Taiwanese government implemented effective prevention and response strategies in the early stages to prevent panic and outbreak in the country.

As of today, Taiwan — half the size of Tasmania and with a similar-sized population as Australia — has only 440 confirmed cases and 7 deaths. The combined effort of medical professionals, the government, private sectors, and Taiwanese society has not only successfully prevented the spread in the country, but this response has also demonstrated Taiwan’s capability and willingness to extend humanitarian and medical assistance to many parts of the world.

However, even as a truly democratic country in Asia, where citizens enjoy freedom of speech, human rights and gender equality, Taiwan is excluded from most major international organisations, including the United Nations and the WHO due to political pressure from the PRC. If a similar health emergency were to occur again in the future, excluding Taiwan from discussions relating to global matters will have a direct impact on the wellbeing, welfare and safety of Taiwan, Australia and the international community. The recognition and support of Taiwan by Australia is more important than ever. To stand for the true values of rights to equality, health for all and no one left behind, we urgently request Australia’s support for Taiwan’s participation in international organisations, including Australian backing of the proposal made by Taiwan’s thirteen diplomatic allies to join the upcoming WHA.

Thank you. We shall look forward to hearing from you.

Yours faithfully,

Jasmine Lin

President

Taiwanese Association of Canberra, Australia

澳洲坎培拉台灣同鄉會Letter to the PM and Members of the National Cabinet

[公告] A petition to invite Taiwan as an observer in the WHA 給世界衛生組織的一封信

臺灣今年又沒有收到世界衛生大會的邀請函,同鄉會寄了一封信給國際衛生組織總幹事Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, 籲請 WHO 邀請我國出席

Taiwan has not received the invitation to the 2019 World Health Assembly, TACA sent a letter to the WHO Director-General Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus urgently request WHO to invite Taiwan to attend the WHA as an observer

——————–

Dear Dr Ghebreyesus,

This is the third time that we, the Taiwanese Association of Canberra, Australia (TACA) write to you to request that the World Health Organisation (WHO) extend the invitation to Taiwan to participate in the upcoming 72nd World Health Assembly (WHA) on 20-28 May 2019.

On 21 February 2019, WHO held a meeting on flu vaccines in Beijing but Taiwan did not receive an invitation until the day of the event, thus was unable to send any representatives to attend. Having no access to important health information not only can put the lives of all the citizens and residents in Taiwan in danger but also risk lives globally when serious influenza viruses spread. How does WHO ensure that we build a better, healthier future for people all over the world as stated on your website when a large number of people are ignored?

Although WHO claims that it is firmly committed to the principles set out in the Constitution that the enjoyment of the highest attainable standard of health is one of the fundamental rights of every human being without distinction of race, religion, political belief, economic or social condition, Taiwan did not receive an invitation to the WHA in 2017 and 2018. This year Taiwan has not yet received an invitation to participate in this important event.

The WHO Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct 4.3 Human Rights and Humanitarian Contexts 50 also states:

In line with the “Human Rights Up Front” (HRuF) initiative launched in 2013 by the UN Secretary-General, WHO shares the moral responsibility to act to, “prevent or respond to serious and large-scale violations of human rights or international humanitarian law”, and anchors human rights as a “core responsibility”.

This decision to not invite Taiwan is a result of WHO bowing to political pressure from China. Denying Taiwan the chance to participate in the WHA and rejecting the right of the 23.76 million Taiwanese people to timely access to critical medical information not only violates the Constitution, ethical principles, and code of conduct but also creates a significant gap in global cooperation on public health safety and disease prevention.

Taiwan has had universal health care coverage for all citizens since 1995 and has one of the best health care systems in the world from which all countries can learn. In recent years, Taiwan has transformed from an aid recipient to an assistance provider. The Taiwan Government attempted to donate USD $1 million to WHO to assist fighting Ebola virus, but the offer was declined by WHO due to political reasons.

Health is a basic human right. TACA strongly advises WHO to give Taiwan the opportunity to be offered the same level of health care as other nations, and for it to be allowed access to critical health information like other countries. We urgently request WHO to consider extending the invitation to Taiwan to attend the 2019 and all future WHAs.

Thank you.

Kind regards,

Chan-Feng Lin

Chairman

Chuan-Min Jasmine Lin

[轉發] Opening night: newly discovered photographs of Beijing, 1900–1902

https_cdn.evbuc.comimages463649501476775187341original

Speaker

Richard Rigby

Venue

Gallery, China in the World Building (188), Fellows Lane, ANU

Date

Friday, 13 July, 2018 – 17:30 to 19:30

The photographs of Beijing in this exhibition were taken in 1901 and 1902 shortly after the end of the Boxer Uprising 義和團運動. They come from an album in the possession of Svetlana Paichadze, assistant professor at Hokkaido University. Although we cannot identify the photographer, it is very likely that the photographs were taken by representatives of the Russian legation in Beijing or someone from the military sent to China in 1900 to suppress the Uprising.

Svetlana Paichadze grew up in Khabarovsk, a city in the Russian Far East, 30 kilometres away from the Chinese border. Her father, S. A. Paichadze studied the history of the Russian books in China, Korea and Japan. Svetlana developed a strong interest in Japanese culture at a young age. In 1984, aged twelve, she met Yu. V. Maretin who specialised in the history of Indonesia and China during a conference about the Amur Region and its famous Russian explorer, V. K. Arseniev. At the time, he was the head of the Asian and African literature department of the State Saltykov-Schedrin Public Library and one of the most important bibliophiles in Leningrad (St. Petersburg). Impressed with Svetlana’s strong interest in East Asia,

Maretin presented her with the photo album of Beijing in 1902 with the words “from the present to the future researcher of East Asia.” Svetlana has always treated the album as a “talisman” which has accompanied her throughout her academic journeys as well as her move from Russia to Japan. Hidden for decades, the album received new attention when Shuge Wei, a historian of modern China at the ANU, saw the great value in it during her visit to the Hokkaido University in 2016 and encouraged Svetlana to share the photographs with a wider community.

The exhibition will be opened by Emeritus Professor Richard Rigby, ANU College of Asia & the Pacific.

The exhibition will be on 13 July- 30 August 2018.

RSVP essential by 11 July
