China – While health services in urban areas continue to improve, many rural parts of the country remain truly underserved. Teaming up with local Chinese organizations and the Red Cross Society of China, the Philips Foundation started a project to train village doctors and local healthcare providers. Most remote villages in China lack local access to healthcare. Minor injuries and illnesses are treated with home remedies and major injuries require a trip on foot or bicycle to the nearest medical clinic. Over 2,000 village doctors have already received training in emergency care, covering millions of villages in Jiangxi, Anhui, Guangxi, Guizhou, Hubei, and Ningxia provinces.
