CGTN published this video item, entitled “How I became a ‘rural doctor’ in China’s remote Nujiang Valley” – below is their description.
For those who have very little in life, good health is great wealth. But what happens when there’s no doctor in sight? This used to be the reality of residents in Pengdang, a remote alpine town in southwest China’s Yunnan Province. Sick people would have to travel hundreds of kilometers of rugged terrain to get medical help.
How has poverty alleviation via health care benefitted underserved communities like Pengdang? What role do doctors there play and why does their job go beyond just treating patients? Watch our new #JobChallenge documentary.#China #poor #health
