This is the second course on training and cooperation in Traditional Chinese Medicine (MTC) 2017, which is part of bilateral cooperation between the Traditional Chinese Medicine Industrial Park Guangdong (Macao) and the Institute of Traditional Medicine (IMT) under MISAU, which results from a memorandum of understanding signed in 2006.
“Since the first training, which last year included 15 Mozambican health staff , the contribution of Chinese medicine practices, together with the Chinese, Korean and Vietnamese alternative medicine doctors working in the field, has benefited up to 42,000 patients in Mozambique”, the statement said.
