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 nationalists industry leads 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 territory (the so-called "one China" policy), while Taiwan wants to preserve its de facto independence. The international community initially recognized the industry leads Taiwanese government, which had representation within international organizations, before this changed in the 1970s. In 1972, Taiwan was excluded industry leads from the WHO and became the People's Republic of China the one that took its place (as in the other international organizations). At the WHO, this raises the question of Taiwan's involvement in epidemic control industry leads mechanisms. The SARS crisis, which particularly 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 point for the IHR, and can contact the WHO industry leads directly, bypassing Beijing.new pro-independence president in the territory. Since the beginning of the crisis, Taiwan has accused China industry leads and the WHO of not having taken into account its alert regarding the risk of interhuman transmission, which would have been made at the end of December 2019. Although Beijing alerted the WHO about cases of industry leads pneumonia due to unknown causes in the city of Wuhan on December 31, 2019, and reported its first death from Covid-19 on January 11, it only confirmed that there was interhuman transmission on industry leads January 20. But to secure the cooperation of member states, the WHO must remain politically prudent.
