Village doctors worry about future

Village doctor Que Dongshu, 76, sets off to work in rural areas of Wuyishan City, East China’s Fujian province, May 18, 2012. Que is one of the city’s some 330 village doctors reaching out to rural villagers without access to medical service. However, a low pay, harsh living condition and insufficient new blood coming into the field all bring a hard time to the ageing doctors in the city, with one-third aged 60 or above, Xinhua reported.

But it’s hard to find a successor,” said Que, the oldest village doctor in the area. [Photo / Xinhua]
