World Health Organization' (WHO) is an inter-governmental organization composed of a number of member states. So far Taiwan couldn't be allowed to become a member of WHO. Since Taiwan applied to be an observer on its Assembly in 1997, there were ninth failures in appealing to attend WHO until 2005. One main reason that this issue was significantly relevant to political meaning definitely has some relations with the opposition of People's Republic of China (PRC). It proves the fact that in terms of the membership, it was just too difficult for Taiwan to attend this organization under the name of ROC. However, since WHO recognizes its formal relations with NGOs and IGOs, it offers an alternative opportunity in which Taiwan seems to participate in this organization. This paper attempts to explore the approach that Taiwan can use to playa part in WHO. That is, to make a detour through NGOs' actions. First, this paper examines governmental perspectives on Taiwan's strategies for participating in international organization in recent years. Moreover, it also examines essential factors" such as principals of WHO, opposition of PRC, NGOs' participation and cooperation when considering Taiwan's propaganda policies., Finally, it analyzes the probable controversies if Taiwan adopts the NGO way to participate in WHO.
