Philippines to send groups of specialists to Taiwan to be trained for liver transplant


Philippine government will send groups of specialists to Taiwan to be trained comprehensively for liver transplant after a Memorandum of Agreement was signed.


Senator Christopher Lawrence “Bong” Go disclosed that Filipinos suffering from various liver diseases would no longer need to go abroad for liver transplant after a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) to perform the procedure in the country was signed in MalacaƱang on Feb 26.

Go said that the Philippine government plans to further capacitate the National Kidney and Transplant Institute (NKTI) by acquiring equipment for and developing its facilities.

This will send its specialist staff to Kaohsiung Chang-Gung Memorial Hospital (KCGMH) in Taiwan for training. This serves as part of the program’s long-term solution.


The government will spend P58.1 million for the equipment that NKTI needs and P1.3 million for a batch of 12 specialists who will be trained for one to two months in Taiwan.

Go, chairman of the Senate health committee, vowed to further improve Filipinos’ access to quality and affordable health care.
