CGTN published this video item, entitled “Men of the people: ‘Doctor on horseback’ who has kept herdsmen healthy for three decades” – below is their description.
CGTN reporter Xu Xinchen travels deep into the mountains to speak with a Kazakh doctor in Xinjiang Autonomous Region. The doctor has provided medical services for local herdsmen for three decades, risking his life for those in need. Jumatay Awbakirule is a doctor at the Bozader Ranch Health Center – a clinic in a remote winter ranch in the mountains. He began to work there in 1992 right out of college. There was no TV, no electricity and treacherous terrains with slippery ice and steep cliffs made things even harder. Doctors have to ride horses to commute. But Jumatay said it’s a doctor’s duty to help people.CGTN YouTube Channel

In This Story: Xinjiang
Xinjiang, an autonomous territory in northwest China, is a vast region of deserts and mountains. It’s home to many ethnic minority groups, including the Turkic Uyghur people. The ancient Silk Road trade route linking China and the Middle East passed through Xinjiang, a legacy that can be seen in the traditional open-air bazaars of its oasis cities, Hotan and Kashgar.
