Updated: 2023-06-09


The Chongqing Health Center for Women and Children (Women and Children's Hospital of Chongqing Medical University), or CQHCWC, in Southwest China's Chongqing, was recently approved as one of the country's first batch of "Infant Nursing and Care Demonstration Guidance Centers" (hereinafter referred to as the Guidance Center), which is the only one in Chongqing.

That result was revealed following preliminary examination, on-site inspection, and re-examination of nearly 150 construction units nationwide by the China Maternal and Child Health Association from April to May.

In May 2021, the Chongqing Health Commission supported the establishment of the Chongqing Health Center for Women and Children (CQHCWC) as a construction unit of the Guidance Center of the China Maternal and Child Health Association. This recognition highlights the CQHCWC's dedication to enhancing care services for infants and young children under 3 years old.

Since its approval, the CQHCWC has been dedicated to enhancing its systems, norms, and operating procedures. The center has focused on continuous improvement, ensuring that its service skills and quality meet the highest standards. By doing so, the CQHCWC has played a crucial role in promoting the orderly development of Chongqing's infant care service system for children under 3 years old.

The center led in formulating nursery institution-related local standards and participated in and published 15 textbooks related to infant and young children's health care.

It also offered both online and offline skill training, benefiting many infant and young children care personnel in Chongqing and Southwest China.

The center also cooperated with other nursery institutions, offering guidance, providing free clinics and training, and carrying out related scientific research projects, which helped improve the healthcare service capabilities of the nursery sector.

In its commitment to advancing knowledge and promoting scientific research in the field of infant care, the center has proactively applied to various scientific research projects. Over the years, the center has successfully presided over or participated in more than 30 research projects related to infant care. The center has actively contributed to the dissemination of research findings by publishing over 50 papers in reputable scientific journals.

Moving forward, the CQHCWC will give full play to its demonstration role and strive to boost the effective, ordered, and high-quality development of the city's infant care services.
