Zhanjiang, Haikou to further cooperation in medical field
A delegation from the health commission of Haikou, the capital city of Hainan province, visited Zhanjiang in Guangdong province from Sept 4 to 6 to further deepen cooperation and exchanges between the two cities in the field of healthcare.
The two sides signed a cooperation framework agreement to build an integrated regional medical rescue center, set up a joint prevention and control mechanism for major infectious diseases and create a big data health platform for the Beibu Gulf.
