WHY TAIWAN Our Experiences
WHO Simulation conference in Taiwan, our motherland. 100 students gathered to discuss two topics: "Global Partnership for Essential Medicine in Developing Countries" and " Unequally Distributed Humanitarian Aids." We t r a i n e d n u m e r o u s m e d i c a l s t u d e n t s t o n o t o n l y possess comprehensive knowledge of international health issues, but also entitle them the ability to convey, debate and negotiate with others on a platform. Through this act, we h o l d t h e b e s t w i s h e s t h a t p a r t i c i p a n t s g a i n m o r e profound recognition and rich in experience, Taiwan’s voice can be spread. Not only did we promote the ideal FMS-TW, but also raised the community's awareness. The very ﬁrst WHO Simulation is a hit, and it motivated us to devote ourselves more to global affairs.
The WHO Simulation session in East-Asian Medical Students’ Conference (EAMSC) 2016 in Taiwan As host of this annual event, FMS-TW combined the WHO Simulation with the conference. Since 1970s, there has been a near consensus that the key to achieving healthcare for all lies at the core of Universal Health Coverage (UHC). However, statistics showed that over 400 million people cannot obtain the most basic health care s e r v i c e s, a n d 1 5 0 m i l l i o n p e o p l e a r e s u b j e c t e d t o ﬁ n a n c i a l catastrophe every year worldwide. As a matter of fact, the topic was " Promoting universal health coverage in the post-2015 development agenda ."Over 150 medical students from 12 countries participants in the discussion, and summed up an ofﬁcial draft resolution that represented our consensus.
The WHO Simulation session in March Meeting 16 ( MM16) Malta In the IFMSA's 2016 March Meeting in Malta, the ch a i r i n t h e ﬁ r s t Ta i wa n W H O S i m u l a t i o n , G e m Wu , hold the "WHO Simulation " session. In this session, she not only shared the experience of holding the very ﬁrst domestic WHO Simulation in Asia-Paciﬁc, but also fostered participants’ awareness of how global health policy can make inﬂuence on health of humanity. "It was a great pleasure to see medical students from all over the world were inspired by our activity. After fully engaging themselves in the session, many participants even started to think about holding their own WHO Simulation." said the organizer, Gem Wu.

DELICACIES 1.Bubble milk tea: Also known as “Pearl Milk Tea,” bubble milk tea originates from Taichung and is made of a mixture of black tea, milk, and sago pearls. The combination of fragrant tea and chewy sago has made this beverage popular not only in Taiwan but in other countries as well. 2.Danzai noodle: Unlike other noodles, danzai noodles are intended to be nibbled at. These yellow noodles are smooth and chewy, and the dish’s broth, brewed with fresh shrimp heads and shells, appears as clear as a tea infusion and has a fresh, sweet ﬂavor. The noodles are usually served with a piece of marinated pork, a shrimp or a marinated boiled egg.
[ ] DELICACIES 3.Stinky Tofu:
While many people are put off by the smell, those who take the plunge are
usually won over by this distinctively treat. Stinky tofu is made of large squares of fermented tofu fried in oil and then cut into four smaller pieces and served with a garnish of pickled cabbage. The crispy skin of the tofu and the soft inside are the best parts of its charm. 4.Cofﬁn bread:
In retrospect most would agree that Cofﬁn Bread Toast is actually a spinoff of a starchy chowder served in a bread bowl, unlike those found typically in West-
ern cuisine. Instead of individual round bread loaves, thick slices of loaf bread aka “Pain de Mie” which was baked in a Pullman tin was used instead.
Because of its shape, it was named “cofﬁn board” in the Taiwanese colloquial tongue, a probable marketing gimmick which proved to be very successful.
