The main task of this group is to find out the actual situation in the local area and formulate a practical plan for the follow-up assistance. Beijing is also the first region to carry out specific docking work for health poverty alleviation.
On March 1, the docking group and the relevant leaders and staff of health commissions of Sichuan Province, Liangshan Prefecture, the two counties held a meeting for discussion and exchanges, and formed a consensus to clarify the priorities of poverty alleviation work in the future. 6 experts from municipal and district CDCs of Beijing, Beijing Ditan Hospital, Beijing You'an Hospital and other units will serve as the first batch of stationing staff from Beijing.
