Taiwan's largest medical centre, Chang Gung Memorial Hospital (CGMH) recently hosted the International Conference on Integrated Cancer Treatment at the Bayview Hotel in Penang.
The event attracted more than 100 medical professionals, academics, business owners, Taiwanese alumni and members of the public, who joined the panel in a detailed discussion on lung, brain and liver cancer as well as experience sharing.
It was co-organised by the Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA), in cooperation with outstanding Penang-based medical institutions, namely, the Island Hospital and Lam Wah Ee Hospital.
CGMH has been working hard to develop a good working relationship between Taiwan and Malaysia, starting with the signing of a memorandum of cooperation with many Malaysian hospitals, early this year.
It has also donated medical equipment and provided training for many Malaysian medical professionals and invited delegates from Penang's Parkway Pantai Medical Group to Taiwan for a study visit on the use of medical information systems.
The exchange of ideas between Taiwan and Malaysia will lead to greater understanding and progress to provide patients with better medical care, according to a statement.
