New center to promote TCM in Mauritius
A China-Mauritius Traditional Chinese Medicine Center will open in October, boosting TCM in Mauritius and benefiting local residents.
The deal was signed between the Shanghai Yueyang Hospital of Integrated Traditional Chinese and Western Medicine and City Clinic in Mauritius.
The project is an overseas TCM Center supported and recognized by the Chinese government.
The Yueyang hospital will send experienced medical staff to practice TCM in Mauritius and train local doctors and nurses.
The two parties will cooperate on TCM services, education and training, clinical research, health care and herbs, officials said.
Dr Zhou Jia, president of Shanghai Yueyang Hospital of Integrated Traditional Chinese and Western Medicine, said the project is part of China's Belt and Road Initiative and is achieved under both governments' support for developing TCM in Mauritius as well as a passion of the City Clinic.
“We will send the best TCM treatment and technologies to Mauritius and build the center in Mauritius into an African TCM center, which also can attract doctors from Africa for training,” Zhou said.
Patrick Chui Wan Cheong, chairman of City Clinic, said delivering TCM training and promoting the philosophy of TCM in Mauritius is his long-term dream as part of his ambition to boost the health of the people of Mauritius.
