The 2012 Women's Health Care Campaign was launched recently in Beijing. 

Initiated by the All-China Women's Federation and several other national departments, the annual program, now in its 13th year, reaches out to more than 30 cities and provinces nationwide in 2012. It is sponsored by Xian-Janssen Pharmaceutical Ltd. 

According to a report released by the Ministry of Health in late 2011, about 29 percent women were suffering from various gynecological diseases in 2010, and many of them knew little about these afflictions until they were infected. 

The program aims to tell young women about health care and prevention of gynecological diseases, mostly through brochures and organizing free clinics.
