China has been sending military medical teams to Zambia since 1984. On January 21, 2013, China’s 16th military medical team arrived in Zambia. The 11-person team was stationed at Maina Soko Hospital in Lusaka and completed its term of service on January 28, 2014.
Chinese military medical teams should not be confused with regular Chinese medical teams, which have also been dispatched from Henan Province to Zambia every two years since 1978.
