3. Constructing A Timeline

Unfortunately, there is very little information available on her. No date of birth, or place of birth beyond “growing up in Hong Kong”. Even at the schools she claims to have completed, there is no searchable information. One would think they would happy to boast about the accomplishments of their alumnus.

The following credential dates are from the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario, but it doesn’t look like Tam has actually practiced medicine at all. There are publications with her name on it, but the rest of her past is a mystery.

1965 – Tam is born in HK (source: Wikipedia)
1989 – U of Nottingham medical degree (CPSO profile)
1996 – U of Alberta pediatric residency completed (CPSO profile)
1997 – UBC fellowship in infectious diseases (CPSO profile)
1999 – Independent Practice Certificate issues (CPSO profile)

In her CPSO profile, Tam claims not to have used any other names, which would contradict speculation that she once went by the name “Tan Yongshi”.

4. Tam’s CPSO Profile Page

The information here can be found at the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario, (CPSO), the board which licenses doctors. The profile lists “EDUCATION” as coming from the University of Nottingham (in the UK) in 1989. Yes, it was followed up with the College of Physicians and Surgeons that it referred to a medical degree. However, no undergraduate degree is listed.

It also lists finishing a University of Alberta pediatric residency in June 1996. Severn years? That seems to be a particularly long time to finish, so what was she doing in the meantime?

The fellowship in the University of British Columbia in pediatric infectious diseases was finished in September 1997.

What’s interesting though is that in researching these schools: Nottingham, UAlberta and UBC, there is no mention of Theresa Tam at all. Once would think that a graduate who is not “Canada’s top doctor” would warrant special attention and adoration. But there isn’t any mention of her at all.

It also states:

First certificate of registration issued: Independent Practice Certificate

However, Tam was getting into government around that time. It doesn’t look like she ever practiced — ANYWHERE. Yet she has become “Canada’s Top Doctor”. She graduated medical school in 1989 and never got a license to practice until a decade later?

5. No Practice Information In Profile

Dr. Theresa Tam was named Canada’s Chief Public Health Officer on June 26, 2017. She is a physician with expertise in immunization, infectious disease, emergency preparedness and global health security.

Dr. Tam obtained her medical degree from the University of Nottingham in the U.K. She completed her paediatric residency at the University of Alberta and her fellowship in paediatric infectious diseases at the University of British Columbia. She is a Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada and has over 55 peer-reviewed journal publications in public health. She is also a graduate of the Canadian Field Epidemiology Program.

Dr. Tam has held several senior leadership positions at the Public Health Agency of Canada, including as the Deputy Chief Public Health Officer and the Assistant Deputy Minister for Infectious Disease Prevention and Control. During her 20 years in public health, she provided technical expertise and leadership on new initiatives to improve communicable disease surveillance, enhance immunization programs, strengthen health emergency management and laboratory biosafety and biosecurity. She has played a leadership role in Canada’s response to public health emergencies including severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS), pandemic influenza H1N1 and Ebola.

Dr. Tam has served as an international expert on a number of World Health Organization committees and has participated in multiple international missions related to SARS, pandemic influenza and polio eradication.

Again, it doesn’t appear from this that Theresa Tam has ever actually practiced medicine. Her first authorization for independent practice was issued in 1999, and she has been in various Government roles for 20 years now.

To get even stranger, it appears that the profile provided here is a cut and paste equivalent of the World Health Organization profile for Tam.

Sound familiar? It is a cut-and-paste equivalent of what is listed in the Canadian profile. Lazy writing, or is she just serving 2 masters?

7. WHO Committee Tam Serves On

PURPOSE 1. The purpose of the Independent Oversight and Advisory Committee (the Committee”), for the WHO Health Emergencies Programme (“the Programme”), established by the Director-General, is to provide oversight and monitoring of the development and performance of the Programme, guide the Programme’s activities, and report its findings through the Executive Board to the Health Assembly. The Committee will advise the Director-General on issues within its mandate. Reports of the Committee will be shared with the Secretary General of the United Nations and with the United Nations’ InterAgency Standing Committee.

WHO.independent.advisory.committee

Tam is in the obvious conflict of interest in both being:
(a) Canada’s Chief Public Health Officer;
(b) serving on this WHO Committee

So does she serve Canada, or the World Health Organization?

Dr Geeta Rao Gupta has over 20 years of experience in international development programming, advocacy and research with UNICEF.

Prior to her appointment as Deputy Executive Director (Programmes), Dr Rao Gupta served as a senior fellow at the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation from 2010 to 2011. She acted as the senior adviser to the Global Development Programme on the strategic direction and management of a cross-cutting range of issues and projects.

One of the WHO Committee Members that Tam works with was previously a senior fellow at the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Would be interesting to ask her take on mass vaccinations. Now, let’s see who else is on the Committee.

Prior to his appointment, Mr Konyndyk worked for Mercy Corps, a global relief and development organization, as its Director of Policy and Advocacy. From 2008 to 2013, he led high-level strategic outreach to governments, donors, the UN, and other partners with a focus on resilience and humanitarian responses to Sudan, Syria, and the Horn of Africa. From 2003 to 2008, he served as the American Refugee Committee’s Country Director in South Sudan, Uganda, and Guinea, designing and leading humanitarian responses in conflict and post-conflict settings. Mr Konyndyk earlier served as a Refugee Officer with the US Department of State’s Bureau of Population, Refugees, and Migration where he managed the Bureau’s portfolio for the Balkans. In addition, he led non-governmental organization relief programmes in Kosovo and Albania following the Kosovo refugee crisis.

For those not familiar, Mercy Corps is an NGO who aims to flood the West with migrants and refugees from Africa and the Middle East.

8. Pharma Funding World Health Org., 2017

WHO.Contributions2017Listings

Note: this is by no means an exhaustive list. However, it should provide some insight as to who is funding the World Health Organization, and give a hint as to what the agenda is.

From Schedule 2:

Institution Amount of Money
Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation $324,654,317
World Bank $145,568,331
GAVI Alliance $133,365,051
United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) $18,251,940
Vital Strategies $10,647,550

Hoffmann-La Roche and Co $6,628,090
Gilead Sciences Inc. $3,124,450
Merck Sharp and Dohme Chibret $1,652,226
Bayer AG $1,158,060
Rockefeller Foundation $748,945
Merck $510,000
Novartis $500,000
International Organization for Migration (IOM) $332,290
Kitasato Daiichi Sankyo Vaccine Co., Ltd(PVS) $220,155
Path Vaccine Solutions(PVS) $294,582
Fluart Innovative Vaccines Ltd. $73,645
Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of PH $88,069
Path Vaccine Solutions (PVS) $73,385
Open Society Institute Budapest Foundation $55,000
Int’l Fed. of Pharmaceutical Manufacturers Ass’n $50,000

The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation is the biggest individual donor (excluding nations). Geeta Rao Gupta is a former Senior Fellow at the Gates Foundation. She is also one of the people on the World Health Org. Committee that Theresa Tam works on.

While Tam is “supposed” to be representing the interests of Canadians, her other employer, the World Health Organization, receives large funding from:

  • Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation
  • World Bank
  • GAVI Alliance (Gates funded
  • The Pharma lobby

Side note: The UN Development Program is helping to fund the International Vaccine Institution (which partners with VIDO-InterVac at the University of Saskatchewan). Gates and GAVI help fund that too.

Can it be any surprise that Tam sees mass vaccination as the solution to this so-called “pandemic” in Canada? After all, it’s what her employers want to see happen. And this is hardly the only time this has happened. Certainly individual countries do make significant contributions to the WHO, but the pharma lobbying can’t be ignored.

9. Pharma Funding World Health Org., 2018

Also worth a look is the 2018 statement of contributions.
WHO.Contributions.Statement.2018

From Schedule 2:

United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) $6,504,848
GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) $5,482,827
Medimmune $2,086,169
KNCV Tuberculosis Foundation $2,045,388

Fluart Innovative Vaccines Ltd. $73,607
Int’l Fed. of Anthroposophic Medical Ass’s $50,000
Takeda Pharmaceuticals International GmbH $19,702

Again, this is nowhere near everyone who contributes to the World Health Organization. However, these are some of the parties who fund it. And Theresa Tam sits on this committee, at the same time she claims to be acting in the best interests of Canadians.

10. Tam A WHO Veteran

How international health emergencies are handled holds lessons for Canadian public health on a range of fronts, from infectious diseases to opioid misuse. That’s the view of Dr. Theresa Tam, who became Canada’s Chief Public Health Officer on an interim basis when Dr. Gregory Taylor retired in December 2016. A competition now underway will determine who will eventually fill the spot, but neither the Privy Council Office, which appoints the position, nor the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) has provided a timeline.

Tam has served on three World Health Organization (WHO) emergency committees: Ebola, Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS) and poliovirus. Emergency committees are convened under the International Health Regulations (IHR) to decide whether disease outbreaks constitute “public health emergencies of international concern” and what measures should be taken to deal with them. Canada has had members on all six of the emergency committees established since the IHR came into force in 2007.

Tam served on several WHO Committees in the 2000’s, and was already “considered a veteran” when appointed to the current role. A Google Scholar search will come up with publications in her name, but they are in the last 20 years or so.

Still it doesn’t help determine what she was doing prior to 2000. Very little information available for the early years.

11. Who Is Theresa Tam Really?

It’s difficult to say. Beyond some very limited information available online, there is next to nothing on her past and early years. Her profile states “growing up in Hong Kong”, and “born in 1965”, yet provides no details.

The schools Tam graduated from don’t have any searchable information on her, which is extremely odd, given her high profile. She graduated medical school in 1989 but doesn’t appear to have obtained a license until 1999. Tam then spent the next 20 years in various Government public health roles, and it seems not to have practiced medicine at all.

Tam did co-author a 2006 report (see CV #12) recommending that vaccination be available to the entire population, and that surveillance apparatus be in place. In fact, she co-authored many research papers in the 2000s. She also participated in the 2010 film “Outbreak” and talked about putting tracking bracelets on, and forced quarantine. Tam spend years in various World Health Organization roles, which is a serious conflict of interest.

While acting as Canada’s Chief Public Health Officer, she sits a World Health Organization Committee. She is part of that Committee along with an ex-Gates Foundation operative. The WHO gets a substantial amount of funding from:

  • Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation
  • World Bank
  • GAVI Alliance (Gates funded
  • The Pharma lobby

In fact, if you read through the previous articles in the series, you will see that a lot of the parties funding WHO (GAVI, GlaxoSmithKline, etc…) are the same ones lobbying the Provinces and Federal Government in Canada. In some sense it “isn’t” a conflict of interest, as Tam’s employers are funded by same special interest groups.

Is Theresa Tam even a Canadian citizen? When did she arrive? There’s no specific information available to the public. She’s like a ghost.

  1. Maybe the reason for no information on this particular subject are because rumor has it, it’s because of not being a woman!!! Possibly of change in identity!!!
