Cooperation agreement signing between PKUIPR with the Surmang Foundation and The Amara Project

        Institute of Population Research, PKU (PKU, IPR) signed a project cooperation agreement with the Surmang Foundation (Surmang) and The Amara Project on 23rd of May, 2009, and going to make an integrated assessment on the work experience of the Surmang (medical service) Model.

  The Surmang Foundation is a charity organization throughout the North America, Europe and China region (already provided 15 years of medical health service in China), dedicated to the alleviation of poverty through the promotion and provision of basic healthcare. The Surmang Charity Medical Center (SCMC) is set up at the West of China in the remote and impoverished region. They apply the means such as volunteer’s participation, active servicing, highly information-based and health education, while providing free treatment and medicine. The Surmang medical attempt in the West of China is worthwhile and valuable, especially contributed to the improvement of maternal and child healthcare in the impoverished region. The Amara Project and the Surmang Foundation are going to promote the SCMC service provision model to the other impoverished, minority ethnic regions as well.

       For the critical time being of China’s medical health reform, whether the Surmang Foundation’s medical model in the western remote and impoverished rural area can or cannot improve the people’s medical and health problem as a reference case, it is worthy of concern. Under the guidance of the Gates Foundation, PKU, IPR vice president Prof. Chen Gong signed a cooperation agreement with the representative of the Surmang and Amara, Lee Weingrad formally. PKU, IPR shall assess the work experience of the Surmang Model, evaluate the strength and weakness of the Model objectively, and vigorously explore the way to improve the population health in remote and impoverished rural region.
