Jiading dispatches medical team to North Africa

A group of medical workers from Shanghai’s Jiading district set out for the North African country of Morocco on Oct 9 to start their two-year medical and health service.

This is the fourth time Jiading has sent a medical team to Morocco, with the previous dispatches in 1994, 2002 and 2008. The workers have overcome various difficulties and have made contributions to the medical and health care system of the country.

Last year, the third group was honored as an outstanding overseas medical team by the Chinese Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The members were received by President Xi Jinping in Beijing.
