On March 29, the State Council Information Office held a press conference to promote the revitalization and development of traditional Chinese medicine. During this period, Liu Qunfeng, director of the planning and Finance Department of the State Administration of traditional Chinese medicine, said that the revitalization and development of traditional Chinese medicine in the new era needs not only the guidance of major policies, but also the support of major engineering projects. It is estimated that the central government’s investment in major projects of traditional Chinese medicine during the “14th five year plan” period will double that of the “13th five year plan”.
At the press conference, Yu Wenming, director of the State Administration of traditional Chinese medicine, revealed that the formulation of the development plan of traditional Chinese medicine during the “14th five year plan” period has been basically completed. In terms of infrastructure construction, Liu Qunfeng said that during the “14th five year plan”, the construction of national traditional Chinese medicine center, regional traditional Chinese medicine medical center, national traditional Chinese Medicine Inheritance and innovation center, national traditional Chinese medicine epidemic prevention and control base, collaborative “flagship” Hospital of Chinese and Western Medicine, key hospital with traditional Chinese medicine characteristics, famous medical hall project, county-level traditional Chinese medicine hospital and other major projects, as well as the National Museum of traditional Chinese medicine, will be built Single project.
“Major projects of traditional Chinese medicine focusing on capacity-building are also the focus.” Liu Qunfeng said that it mainly includes the improvement project of grassroots Chinese medicine service ability, TCM advantage specialty, TCM preventive treatment service ability, TCM rehabilitation service ability, clinical cooperation ability of Integrated Chinese and Western medicine, national clinical medicine research center, “Qihuang project”, TCM culture promotion project, overseas promotion project of Chinese Medicine, etc.
In the “several policies and measures on accelerating the development of traditional Chinese medicine” issued by the State Council on January 22 this year, it is clear that a series of major projects to support the development of traditional Chinese medicine should be implemented, covering the cultivation of talents with characteristics of traditional Chinese medicine, the construction of medical service system of traditional Chinese medicine, and the construction of research platform of traditional Chinese medicine. The Fifth Plenary Session of the 19th CPC Central Committee also proposed to vigorously develop the cause of traditional Chinese medicine. The national “fourteenth five year” plan, the outline of long-term goals for 2035 and this year’s government work report also mentioned to promote the revitalization and development of traditional Chinese medicine. These arrangements had clear and specific directions in the press conference.
Sun Zhicheng, head of the social development department of the national development and Reform Commission, said that in terms of regional medical centers, more high-level traditional Chinese medicine hospitals will be guided to provinces where patients flow out more and quality medical resources are relatively weak, so as to build regional medical centers characterized by traditional Chinese medicine. The purpose of this measure is to speed up the expansion of high-quality medical resources and regional balanced distribution.
In addition, the administration of traditional Chinese medicine will promote the expansion and sinking of provincial high-quality medical resources of traditional Chinese medicine, and expand and sink provincial high-quality resources to the prefecture level. Among the existing municipal TCM hospitals, a number of key hospitals with TCM characteristics should be selected to make TCM specialties better and stronger, so that more people can enjoy convenient and high-quality TCM services nearby in the province.
In response, Zhao Heng, a medical expert, said in an interview with Beijing Business Daily: “the sinking of high-quality TCM resources is the focus of development, and the core is the cultivation of talents. At present, there is a shortage of Chinese medicine talents at the grass-roots level. The main reason is how to establish a training system and talent echelon, improve the income level of the grass-roots level, and attract and promote Chinese medicine talents to the grass-roots level. “
According to the data of the State Administration of traditional Chinese medicine, by the end of 2019, 85% of the second level and above general hospitals in China have set up TCM departments, and most county-level maternal and child health care institutions can provide TCM services; 98.3% of community health service centers and 97.1% of township hospitals can provide TCM services.
Jiang Jian, director of the Department of medical administration of the administration of traditional Chinese medicine, said that all community health service centers and township health centers will set up traditional Chinese medicine libraries. We will provide preventive treatment, medical treatment and rehabilitation services of traditional Chinese medicine in TCM museums, promote the use of non drug therapy and appropriate technologies of traditional Chinese medicine, and improve the accessibility and quality of grass-roots TCM services.
In addition, the administration of traditional Chinese medicine has earlier implemented the 13th five year action plan of the grassroots TCM service capacity improvement project, promoting more than 30000 community health service centers and township hospitals to set up TCM comprehensive service areas (TCM library and Guoyitang), and implementing the construction project of health information platform of grassroots TCM library. By the end of December 2020, the platform has been connected to 14700 TCM libraries, 38800 registered doctors and 13.79 million patients.
