Once again, the international organisation, supposed to help to face or avoid diseases proliferation put economy first.
It seems that Taiwan doesn't belong to the world. When Sars was all over asia, WHO didn't help Taiwan.
Now, they would like people to beleive that Taiwanese birds are flu infected . Well, not yet, sir...
WHO blasted over bird flu mapping

KILLER STRAIN: Government officials said the WHO was misleading the world by listing Taiwan as a bird-flu infected territory because it considers it a part of China

The government will continue its protest against the World Health Organization's (WHO) inclusion of Taiwan on maps of countries affected by the virulent H5N1 bird flu virus until a correction is made, health and foreign ministry official said yesterday

There have been no reports of H5N1 infection in Taiwan among either poultry or humans. The WHO, which adheres to the "one China" policy, lists the nation as "Taiwan, a province of China" in official documents.

Vice Minister of Foreign Affairs Michael Kau (高英茂) yesterday said that the WHO had made a serious "technical" mistake and was misleading the world by including Taiwan on the map of bird flu affected areas on its Web site.

"This is an unbearable and unforgivable mistake," Kau said.

"We reserve our right to take legal action against the WHO. Even though the WHO might enjoy a certain measure of immunity because it is a UN organization, we could still take action if Taiwan incurs serious economic damage [as a result of the inclusion with China]," Kau said.
