The WHO has also just launched a “solidarity industry leads fund ', which prefigures the launch of a WHO foundation, in order to raise funds from the public (through individual donations), private foundations and the private sector. The WHO is also limited by industry leads geopolitical relations between states, and in the case of epidemic control, more particularly by relations between China and Taiwan. Since the victory of Mao Zedong's communists against Chiang Kai-shek's industry leads nationalists and the latter's exile on the island of Taiwan in 1949, both states claim to represent the Chinese nation.
China regards Taiwan as part of its industry leads territory (the so-called "one China" policy), while Taiwan wants to preserve its de facto independence. The international community initially recognized the Taiwanese government, which had representation industry leads within international organizations, before this changed in the 1970s. In 1972, Taiwan was excluded from the WHO and became the People's Republic of China the one that took its place (as in the other international industry leads organizations). At the WHO, this raises the question of Taiwan's involvement in epidemic control mechanisms.
The SARS crisis, which particularly industry leads affected Taiwan, forced China to allow WHO experts to be sent to the island in 2003. As of 2009, Taiwan was able to be directly included in the IHR: the Control Center for Taiwan Diseases became the contact industry leads point for the IHR, and can contact the WHO directly, bypassing Beijing.new pro-independence president in the territory. Since the beginning of the crisis, Taiwan has accused China and the WHO of not having taken into account its alert regarding the risk of interhuman transmission, which industry leads would have been made at the end of December 2019.
