The government of Tianjun County, western Qinghai Province had spent 220,000 yuan (32,230 U.S. dollars) by the end of September providing medical services to local residents and offering free medical treatment to 300 people.
Tianjun County in Haixi Mongol and Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture has been pursuing the "health campaign for herders" since the beginning of this year. During the campaign, 110 doctors and nurses were sent to 10 townships to offer free check-ups to 9,115 locals aged 7-50.
About 1,180 were diagnosed with infectious diseases including hydatid disease and Brucellosis, diseases commonly detected in pastoral areas.
Meanwhile, doctors also publicized health knowledge via TV and newspapers and by offering on-the-spot consulting services, distributing brochures and visiting villagers in their homes.
As a result, a total of 9,000 copies of such brochures were given out and 30 display boards made. At the same time, 6,000 people received medical advice and 800 health care medicine cases were handed out.
