Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 8, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta Wednesday, January 8, 1975 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 39 Medical revolution New system emerges in China based on four Mao directives Long trek ends Jim Clarkson of Victoria, B.C., was greeted by Mayor Dorothy Wyatt, right, of St. John's when he arrived in the Newfoundland capital after walking across Canada in 275 days. HONG KONG (CP) A medical revolution has been going on in China in the last two decades, and a new defini- tion of the medical profession, its system and principles is beginning to emerge. Medical students in China do not spend years buried in books, memorizing parts of the human anatomy, and doc- tors, instead of sitting behind desks, go to the countryside and factories. The tumult that rocked China's medical field has been founded on the four directives issued by Chairman Mao Tse- tung in the early 1950s: large-scale pre- vention. the masses. Chinese and Western medical skills. research on the common diseases found among the people. Based on these four prin- ciples, a unique network of medical facilities came into being. These stations penetrated cities and villages alike, though the Chinese ad- mit that they are still inade- quate. In Peking, for instance, medical facilities for a dis- trict of persons are divided into four tiers con- sisting of two municipal hospitals of 600 beds each, two district hospitals of 100 beds each, numerous residential hospitals and neighborhood medical stations. The division is like a pyramid with neighborhood stations handling simple illnesses such as colds, while more complicated cases are referred to the better equipped hospitals at the top. Medical workers at the bot- tom of the ladder can thus issue aspirins and cold tablets or give inoculations, ex- empting the physicians from these tasks. The same system works in the countryside. First there is the commune hospital capable of performing simple sur- geries, and down below are the clinics of the big brigades and production teams. The latter comprise the offices of the "barefoot medically trained peasants who carry Red Cross kits to the fields while working .with other commune members. This finely-woven mesh of medical stations provides the manpower in carrying out the motto: "Prevention is better than cure." Shots are given to children every season in schools and nurseries, and for those staying at home, mobile units knock on their doors. The stations keep record of every child so that none, will be spared the needle. A class of 60 pupils of a Pe- king medical school now spends eight months of their freshman year in communes. Their training has been reduc- ed to years from the usual six years and the emphasis is on practice. In most city hospitals, the staff goes on missions by rota- tion. One batch may roam the wilderness for one year, dur- ing which their job is to train medical personnel among the peasants. The achievements of the last two wiping out of epidemics such as cholera, smallpox, venereal disease and to indicate that these seeds have grown fast. i 318-6th St. South Phone 329-3646 Lethbridge.
