China continues to change at a rapid pace. However, not everyone is able to take advantage of this rapid progress in such an advantageous way. The United Foundation for China’s Health (UFCH) provides a unique link for vulnerable populations in China and the medical care they need.
Working through partner organizations which provide care to orphans, the disabled, the abused, migrant workers and the elderly, both public and private, UFCH offers these organizations access to the best medical care China has to offer. This medical care is predominately free, or at very reduced cost. UFCH provides nearly 50 partner organizations throughout China with medical services and with the launch of its new Wheels for Life Community Health Bus, UFCH will be able to exponentially grow its ability to service an even greater number of people in need.
Orphans in China need corrective surgery before they can be put on an adoption list to find their forever family. 98% of abandoned children today have birth defects or other serious medical issues. Growing affluence also brings with it the negative side of society, with more domestic violence, sexual abuse, chronic disease and a growing elderly population. UFCH provides chronic disease management, preventative healthcare screenings, mental health care, specialist care, surgical care, mobile healthcare and emergency care to these underserved populations.
We also promote Primary Healthcare through practice and education. UFCH has a Foundation Clinic staffed by Primary Healthcare Doctors and Fellows. In order to reach the root of many medical emergencies, UFCH also provides ongoing training, education and seminars to caregivers, doctors and nurses and the general public.
