Bet­ter Med­i­cal Ed­u­ca­tion

ChinAfrica - - News Roundup -

Chi­nese Pre­mier Li Ke­qiang has in­structed ed­u­ca­tion and health au­thor­i­ties to push for­ward the coun­try’s med­i­cal ed­u­ca­tion re­form and im­prove pro­fes­sional train­ing to build a “healthy China.”

In a writ­ten in­struc­tion for a na­tional con­fer­ence on med­i­cal ed­u­ca­tion re­form held in Bei­jing on July 4, Li urged the Min­istry of Ed­u­ca­tion, the Na­tional Health and Fam­ily Plan­ning Com­mis­sion and the State Ad­min­is­tra­tion of Tra­di­tional Chi­nese Medicine (TCM) to step up in­no­va­tion and fur­ther co­or­di­nate med­i­cal prac­tice with ed­u­ca­tion.

They should take into ac­count China’s con­di­tions while learn­ing from other coun­tries, put TCM and West­ern medicine on an equal foot­ing, and cul­ti­vate more qual­i­fied med­i­cal pro­fes­sion­als to pro­vide bet­ter health ser­vices, Li said.
