At a conference in the Jiading district of the city of Shanghai, on Nov 11, the organizers announced plans to monitor the medical services field in the fight against illegal medical practices.

The related crackdown mainly targets unlicensed practitioners, unnecessary fetal gender tests, and sex-selective abortions.

The district government began its medical monitoring efforts back in 2005 and in the intervening years has developed a governmental management system involving health supervisors and community health service centers. And, things have worked out well, with the discovery of 2,373 illegal activities, with punishment handed out in 742 of the cases, and 54 handed over to the judiciary resulting in 41 people being sentenced.

Li Yuan, deputy head of the district, was present at the meeting.
