The occurrence of Sever Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) in 2003 has encouraged researchers to concentrate on how states deal with the crisis and manage it. By choosing Mainland China and Taiwan as the cases, this thesis intends to make description and comparison of two governments in handling the SARS crisis, especially in administrative effectiveness and the ability of crisis management. By adopting Steven Fink's crisis model as research framework, this work will point out the similarities and differences of crisis management during the SARS period of the two governments.
This research finds that there are common defects during the SARS crisis for both governments, such as distraction of crisis processing, poorly function of health administration sectors, tardily response to emergency, perception difference on epidemic prevention and passive of epidemic prevention strategies among different bureaucrats. The result also indicates that the health systems of Taiwan are more responsive than that of Mainland China in network systems of monitoring and informing.
Finally, this thesis proposes ten policy recommendations in dealing with infectious diseases such as SARS. These recommendations include 1. to establish professional institutions to deal with epidemic prevention; 2. to revise and augment the laws to deal with national emergency; 3. to revise the laws of infectious disease of prevention and cure; 4. to establish the standard procedures to manage the emergency of epidemic prevention; 5. to setup the processes of public of epidemic prevention; 6. to strengthen the medical personnel ability to handle emergency; 7. to improve the communication quality of epidemic situation to the public; 8. to ensure the necessary inspection of trespass; 9. to host the international academic conference of infectious disease; and last, to be affiliated with the World Health Organization.
