The tests were donated by Taiwanese manufacturer TaiDoc Technology Corp. and Fora Care Foundation, and were handed over on January 14.
The donation is expected to strengthen the Government of St. Vincent and the Grenadines’ capacity to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic
The donation is the concrete practice of the public-private collaboration, which upholds the spirit of “Taiwan Can Help” to combat the CONVID-19 pandemic in particular, and to fulfill the World Health Organization’s goal of “Health for All”.
Since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic last year, the Government of the Republic of China (Taiwan) has assisted the Government of St. Vincent and the Grenadines in its effort to prevent and control COVID-19, by providing medical supplies such as masks, ventilators, PCR machines, isolation gowns and forehead thermometers, and sharing its experience in the fight against COVID-19.
Taiwan has also reached out to diplomatic allies and like-minded countries in their efforts to combat the pandemic, through its successful “Taiwan Model”, and to promote the health and well-being of the international community.
