I’m currently editing a document for a Taipei-based human rights organization. There is reference to the need for prisons to implement the popular name-based mask rationing system within the prison so as to allocate the appropriate disease-prevention medical supplies for prisoners through the use of the prisoner’s NHI card. I need to know, though, as to whether international people have access to the NHI as a means of getting treatment within prison. If not, I would concede that the rights of international people are being infringed insofar as they would not have equal access to medical care that local inmates do to the extent that they would be required to pay higher costs while in prison (how do they have access to funds to accommodate those costs?). Prisoners have apparently had access to the NHI since 2013 (sourced below but no mention of international people imprisoned in Taiwan).
If anyone happens to know about this very specific question, sources for the law would be much appreciated.
