U.S., Taiwan sign first-ever MOU.

Taiwan and the United States signed their first memorandum of understanding (MOU) on health cooperation to expand cooperation on global health security, infectious disease control and vaccine development.

The MOU was signed by Brent Christensen, director of the American Institute in Taiwan (AIT), and Yang Jen-ni (楊珍妮), chairwoman of the Taiwan Council for U.S. Affairs (TCUSA).

The signing was witnessed by U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS) Alex Azar, who is currently in Taiwan, and Taiwan's Health Minister Chen Shih-chung (陳時中).

According to a statement by the Ministry of Health and Welfare, the MOU was the first signed between the two health ministries despite decades of cooperation in public health, particularly in emerging infectious diseases response and dengue vaccine research.

It will lead to greater bilateral cooperation in areas such as global health security, digital health, infectious disease prevention, and vaccine development, the statement said.

Collaborative efforts under the MOU's framework will be conducted through science and research projects, personnel exchanges, training, consultations, and workshops and conferences, it said.
