Experts from the Beijing-based Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention, or China CDC, recently helped out with high-risk children's health care in Southwest China's Chongqing municipality.

A delegation from the Children's Health Department of the National Center for Women and Children's Health at the China CDC visited the Bishan district of Chongqing on June 9.

The delegation, which was led by deputy department director Zhang Yue, went there to survey and guide Chongqing's high-risk child health care pilot projects.

Wang Nianrong, director of the Children's Health Care Division of the Chongqing Health Center for Women and Children – or CQHCWC – joined the survey, together with staff members from the maternal and child health care centers in Wanzhou, Changshou and Dazu districts.

The delegation listened to a report by Bishan district's maternal and child health care center on work related to high-risk children's health care. Delegates learned about the management of high-risk children in the district and at the center.

Experts analyzed and shared their opinions on how to improve the quality of health care services for high-risk children. They discussed boosting the public's awareness of high-risk children's health care and optimizing high-risk children's information management – from the perspectives of administrative departments, families and individuals.

They also visited the neonatology and children's health care departments of Bishan district's maternal and child health care center and the Bicheng sub-district health center.

The aim of the visit was to learn about the implementation of classification management, transfer processes and information sharing about high-risk children in the various departments of the district, county, and township-level maternal and child health hospitals.

Delegation leader Zhang Yue urged Chongqing to improve the services of the district and county-level maternal and child health care institutions, and become a national demonstration area for high-risk children's health management.
