Since 1973, the Chinese Government has been dispatching medical teams to Tunisia (see '中突两国政府签署援突第二十批医疗队合作议定书'). The Jiangxi Province is responsible for sending the teams (see '江西省历批援外医疗队员名单'). On September 28, 2012, the Chinese Government and the Government of Tunisia signed a memorandum of understanding to dispatch the 20th Chinese medical team to Tunisia (see 'Tunisie: la Chine édifiera un hôpital universitaire à Sfax'). 10 members of the Committee on Rights, Freedoms and External Relations under the National Constituent Assembly voted against approving the agreement, but the agreement was ultimately executed (see 'Examen en commission de plusieurs projets de loi'). The medical team consisted of 45 members (see '江西省历批援外医疗队员名单'). It was stationed at Jendouba regional hospital (Hôpital Régional De Jendouba or المستشفى الجهوي بجندوبة), Sidi Bouzid regional hospital (Hôpital Régional De Sidi Bouzid or المستشفى الجهوي بسيدي بوزيد), Kasserine Regional Hospital (Hôpital Régional De Kasserine or المستشفى الجهوي بالقصرين), and Mongi Slim Hospital (Hôpital Mongi Slim or مستشفى المنجي سليم) in the northern suburbs of Tunis (see 'Tunisie: la Chine édifiera un hôpital universitaire à Sfax'). The medical team left China for its two-year stay in Tunisia on December 5, 2012 (see '我省第20批援突尼斯医疗队出征'). It completed its term of service in December 2014 (see '第20批援突尼斯医疗队回国总结座谈会在昌召开').
