|Background For Development
TWGHs has been playing an active part in the promotion and modernization of Chinese medicine by the establishment of Information Technology supported Chinese medicine centres, development of comprehensive Chinese medicine clinical information system and support in Chinese medicine clinical research. The effect has been recognized by the increasing attendance and good reputation among the local community.
It is believed that Chinese medicine has tremendous potentials in the medical arena. There are many people suffering from various diseases who might wish to seek assistance from Chinese medicine, while do not have or do not know where to locate reliable information.
It is therefore felt that TWGHs should take up this mission of further promoting the use of Chinese medicine to the world by the establishment of a “Famous & Prominent Doctors in TCM in China Portal”with the aim of providing comprehensive information of experienced Chinese medicine medical experts in various provinces and cities of Mainland China to those in need of help. With the widespread use of the internet, this portal will be an effective means to provide such an access.
The database on doctors and institutions was developed in collaboration with the World Federation of Chinese Medicine Societies (WFCMS). The purpose is to provide more information on TCM institutions, practitioners and specialties in China. This encourages the exchange of Chinese medicine knowledge among different countries or regions. The project also increases the understanding of Chinese medicine by governments and communities all over the world, offering enquiry services to societies and academia worldwide, providing comprehensive contact information on all famous and experienced Chinese medicine experts in various provinces of China to those who desire this information. The use of Chinese medicine to the world will hence be promoted and will contribute greatly to the well-being of mankind.
