Belize and Taiwan to Cooperate on Public Health

SAN JUAN – Belize will receive technical support from Taiwan to improve health education, disease-screening and clinical services, the Belizean government said Wednesday in a statement.

The support will be provided under an accord signed by Belizean Health Minister Pablo Marin and Taiwan’s ambassador to the Central American nation, Benjamin Ho.

The collaboration will include training of medical personnel in Belize.

The signing comes a day after Belizean authorities said the country had no confirmed cases of the Zika virus.

The Health Ministry activated on Tuesday a national plan to eradicate breeding sites for the Aedes aegypti mosquito, which carries the dengue fever, Chikungunya and Zika viruses.

Zika is present in a score of Latin American and Caribbean countries.
