Tra­di­tional Chi­nese medicine catch­ing on glob­ally

China Daily (Canada) - - NEWS CAPSULE -

A white pa­per re­leased by the State Coun­cil In­for­ma­tion Of­fice outlines China’s ef­forts to pro­mote in­ter­na­tional ex­changes and co­op­er­a­tion in tra­di­tional Chi­nese medicine. The pa­per, Tra­di­tional Chi­nese Medicine in China, said TCM has spread to 183 coun­tries and re­gions.

Ac­cord­ing to the World Health Or­ga­ni­za­tion, 103 mem­ber states have given ap­proval to the prac­tice of acupunc­ture and mox­i­bus­tion, 29 have en­acted spe­cial statutes re­gard­ing tra­di­tional medicine, and 18 have in­cluded acupunc­ture and mox­i­bus­tion treat­ments in their med­i­cal in­sur­ance pro­vi­sions, the white pa­per said.

TCM has grad­u­ally gained more in­ter­na­tional ac­cep­tance, from Rus­sia to the United Arab Emi­rates.

Many coun­tries have ex­pressed hopes of work­ing more closely with China on TCM.
