Description

China has been sending medical teams to Liberia every two years since 2005. On July 28, 2005, a team of 9 Chinese medical experts arrived in Liberia to provide medical assistance and to help train medical doctors and physicians at the largest referral hospital - the JFK Medical Centre in Monrovia, the capital of Liberia (See: 'Chinese Medical Team Arrives In Liberia'). The Chinese medical team consists of members in specialized areas ranging from internal medicine, general surgery, obstetrics and gynecology to ophthalmology and acupuncture, as well as anesthesiology. On October 24, 2007, the medical team left for home, and they were replaced by the second Chinese medical team to Liberia, which had arrived in the country on October 17, 2007 (See: 'Second Chinese Medical team arrives in Liberia'). This project is completed.
