A working team from the Chongqing Health Center for Women and Children (Women and Children's Hospital of Chongqing Medical University), also known as the CQHCWC, located in Southwest China's Chongqing, visited the city of Chamdo in Tibet autonomous region from May 11 to 14.

The team, led by Zhou Wei, vice-president of the CQHCWC, consisted of six members, who visited to assist with the establishment of a prenatal diagnosis center at the Chamdo Maternal and Child Health Hospital and carry out a preliminary survey for future prenatal screening and diagnosis work in Chamdo.

The visit was also aimed at strengthening medical aid and health poverty alleviation in Tibet.

On May 12, the CQHCWC team visited the Chamdo Maternal and Child Health Hospital to learn about its development status and attended a meeting with officials from the Chamdo health commission and local medical workers.

During the meeting, Zhou discussed with local officials the establishment of major maternal and child public health projects in the city, such as a prenatal diagnosis center and a birth defect prevention and control system.

On behalf of the CQHCWC, Zhou donated "cloud women and children" software and hardware equipment worth more than 200,000 yuan ($29,880) to the hospital and said he hoped the two sides would deepen their partnership and that the cloud project would improve the health of women and children in Chamdo city.

The team also went to Chamdo People's Hospital to visit Li Li, a member of the CQHCWC's medical team to aid Tibet. She came to Tibet in January 2021 and has been working to develop local medical services.

The CQHCWC also donated medical equipment and instruments worth 100,000 yuan to the hospital.

He said that moving forward, the center would implement stricter standards to ensure higher quality of the assistance project.
