Community Involvement

Community InvolvementChina has vast territory and large population, of which over 70% of the residents are living in rural areas. In health care, China faces not only the overall shortage of medical resources, but also the extremely unreasonable distribution of it. Large and medium-sized cities have accounted for 90% of the resources, resulting in the vast rural areas in a serious shortage of medical facilities, doctors and medication. People from those areas are difficult to receive any proper medical treatment. The rocking price of medical service in the cities also holds them back.
