Five experts in Xuzhou City Central Hospital held a video conference with the hospital’s doctors on a medical assistance mission in Zanzibar, Tanzania on the afternoon of January 9, working out a treatment plan after hearing about a patient’s condition.

The experts in the online medical consultations included Ma Chao, director of the hospital’s spine surgery department, and Chen Wei, director of the rehabilitation department.

The patient, the former health minister of the Zanzibar, suffers from a lumbar herniated disc. Two weeks ago, she fell accidentally and experienced unbearable pain, so she asked for help from Chinese doctors on the medical assistance mission in Zanzibar.

Zanzibar is one of the poorest regions in the world with scarce medical care resources, according to the World Health Organization. In June 2018, a medical team of 11 people from Xuzhou City Central Hospital went to Zanzibar for one-year medical aid.
