Winning the country and regional awards provides solid proof that the international community recognizes NHIA's successful COVID-19 prevention strategies and contributions to ensuring  people’s health.

  During the pandemic, the NHIA demonstrated its organizational resilience, optimized the functions of the NHI MediCloud System, and developed a real-time alarm system for travel history, occupation, contact history, and cluster history (TOCC) tracking under the instructions given by the former Vice Premier Chi-Mai Chen and the commander of Central Epidemic Command Center, Shih-Chung Chen. Moreover, the NHIA dealt with the threat and impact of the pandemic through the applications of digital technology and successfully contained the spread of the virus with early preparedness. Taiwan's achievement in fighting against the pandemic has been recognized by the international community, making Taiwan a global role model.
