SCM co-hosts lecture to explore impact of China’s law on Chinese medicine

中醫藥學院合辦講座探討內地新實施中醫藥法的影響

Collaborating with the Institute of Creativity, the School of Chinese Medicine (SCM) hosted a Distinguished Lecture on 24 September, with the Vice-Minister of the National Health and Family Planning Commission and the Commissioner of the State Administration of Traditional Chinese Medicine Professor Wang Guoqiang speaking on the topic “Impact of the Country’s First Law on Traditional Chinese Medicine on the Development of Chinese Medicine”. Sponsored by the Hung Hin Shiu Charitable Foundation, the lecture attracted about 180 participants including officials from the Department of Health, professionals from the Chinese medicine industry, teachers, students and alumni of SCM and other local universities as well as registered Chinese medicine practitioners who wished to gain a better understanding of the new legislation and how it would foster the development of Chinese medicine.

The Law of the People's Republic of China on Traditional Chinese Medicine was passed by the National People's Congress of the People's Republic of China on 25 December 2016 and came into effect on 1 July 2017.

Professor Wang said that the central government, with a broad view of the socio-economic development of the country and the goal of building a healthy country, has put forward a series of new ideas, decisions and demands, and made new plans and strategies for the development of Chinese medicine. Consequently, legislation has been enacted for the first time to set out the significant role and development direction of as well as support measures for Chinese medicine, and to regulate different aspects of Chinese medicine, including medical service, healthcare, education, research, industry, culture and international exchange. It serves as an important reference for the regulation of the Chinese medicine industry, and is all-important in modernising and enhancing the governance of Chinese medicine, fostering the robust development of Chinese medicine and contributing to public health. 

Professor Wang elucidated the main provisions of the Chinese medicine law, which covers the areas of Chinese medicine services, protection and development of Chinese materia medica, nurturing of Chinese medicine professionals, scientific research, inheritance and promotion of Chinese medicine as well as legal protection.

In addition, SCM joined hands with the Committee on Chinese Materia Medica of Hong Kong Registered Chinese Medicine Practitioners Association and Hong Kong-Macau Alumni Association of Beijing University of Chinese Medicine to organise on 23 September a Chinese medicine seminar which featured Associate Dean of SCM Professor Zhao Zhongzhen who spoke on “Points to note for use of proprietary Chinese medicine for consumers and Chinese medicine practitioners”, and Principal Lecturer of SCM’s Teaching and Research Division Dr Tu Feng, who shared on the treatment of joint pain. Sponsored by Beijing Tong Ren Tang Chinese Medicine Co Ltd, the seminar attracted an audience of about 200 comprising SCM teachers and students as well as registered Chinese medicine practitioners.
