Greater Bay Area Health Bodies Sign Six-Point Formal Co-operation Agreement
The 25 February signing of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area Health Co-operation Consensus saw 62 health co-operation projects across the wider region given the formal go ahead.
Overall, the Co-operation Consensus identifies six priority areas for greater future collaboration:
i) Closer co-operation with regard to the use of premium medical resources
ii) Strengthening co-operation when tackling public health emergencies
iii) Greater co-operation in the development and exploitation of traditional Chinese medicine
iv) Expanding co-operation in the areas of scientific research and related services
v) Strengthening personnel training co-operation
vi) Nurturing increasingly patient-centric medical services
Essentially, the Consensus is seen as providing the framework for greater integration between its three signatories – The Guangdong Health Commission, The Food and Health Bureau of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region and The Health Bureau of the Macao Special Administrative Region.
