“This year’s government work report emphasizes supporting the inheritance and development of the Chinese medicine industry. This shows that the Party Central Committee and the State Council attach great importance to the development of Chinese medicine and care for them. It is also a great encouragement and spur to Chinese medicine workers.” When Yu Wenming, the deputy director of the State Administration of Traditional Chinese Medicine, accepted an exclusive interview with this reporter, he spoke on the most deeply felt content in the government work report.


Since the party’s 18th National Congress, the CPC Central Committee and the State Council have attached great importance to the development of the Chinese medicine industry, continuously strengthened the strategic planning and top-level design of the reform and development of Chinese medicine, listed the development of Chinese medicine as a national strategy, and successively introduced a series of policy measures. It was the introduction of the "Chinese Medicine Law of the People's Republic of China" and the "Outline of the Strategic Plan for the Development of Chinese Medicine (2016-2030)". It has strongly promoted the development of Chinese medicine and the development of Chinese medicine has ushered in a new period of strategic opportunities.


Standing on the historical starting point of the new era, how to develop Chinese medicine, how to strengthen the inheritance of traditional Chinese medicine, where is the starting point and the goal of developing the traditional Chinese medicine, why Chinese medicine should “go out”, and how can we make steady progress? During the period, the "Proposal on Accelerating the Formulation of Traditional Chinese Medicine Regulations on the Protection of Traditional Knowledge," "Proposal on the Role of TCM, and the Strengthening of Basic Medical Services", "Suggestion on Establishing the "Belt and Road" Special Fund for Chinese Medicine Proposals such as the "Proposal on Promoting the International Spread of Chinese Medical Culture" may give us some answers.


Inheritance and development is the mission of responsibility and basic work


The report of the party's Nineteenth Congress put forward the importance of adhering to both Chinese and Western medicine, inheriting and developing the cause of traditional Chinese medicine, and provided a direction for the promotion and development of Chinese medicine in the new era. This year's government work report proposes support for the inheritance and development of the Chinese medicine industry. “Two important reports all emphasize 'inheritance and development'. This is the strategic deployment of the Party Central Committee and the State Council to the work of Chinese medicine, and also reflects the key requirements of the Party Central Committee and the State Council for the development of Chinese medicine.” Yu Wenming said.


Inheritance and development is the focus of current work in Chinese medicine, and innovation should be based on inheritance. "There are no inherited innovations, like rootless trees and passive water. To promote the development of traditional Chinese medicine, we must build the foundation of inheritance, systematically inherit the theoretical knowledge and valuable experience of Chinese medicine, and innovate and develop on the basis of inheritance. 'Ancient for the present, the ocean is used in China'." Yu Wenming said.


How traditional Chinese medicine theory plays a role in the prevention and treatment of clinical diseases, how traditional concocting techniques are inherited and protected, and how the protection and application of academic experience of famous and old Chinese medicine practitioners has always been a concern of civilization. At this meeting, he again called for strengthening the protection of traditional Chinese medicine.


Yu Wen believes that the traditional knowledge of traditional Chinese medicine is a precious resource of the Chinese nation, an ancient Chinese scientific treasure, and a core element in the development of Chinese medicine. How to establish a parallel and complementary system with the modern intellectual property system and solve the "malpractices" of modern Chinese intellectual property systems that can not protect traditional Chinese medicine processing techniques and famous doctors' names and prescriptions' special curative effects is an important task in the future.


In recent years, the relevant departments have recognized the importance of the protection of traditional knowledge of traditional Chinese medicine, especially the Chinese medicine law and strategic planning outline. However, the core issues concerning the protection of traditional knowledge of traditional Chinese medicine still need to be further clarified. clear. It is urgently needed to establish regulations and systems at the national level, protection technology level, and academic level in order to protect what, how to protect, benefit-sharing mechanisms and forms, and how subjects of the subject matter of rights and interests are sorted out.


Yu Wenming suggested that at the national level, it should speed up strategic research, formulate the “Regulations on the Protection of Traditional Knowledge of Traditional Chinese Medicine”, and establish and improve the protection system for traditional knowledge. He pointed out that in order to do this work, we must strengthen strategic research. We must strengthen the top-level design of the traditional Chinese medicine knowledge protection system at the national strategic level, in particular, accurately define the connotation and extension of traditional Chinese medicine knowledge, define what to protect and how to protect it. Such as a series of issues, determine the rights subject, object and main content, formulate the corresponding scope of rights limits and rights, while taking into account the protection of traditional Chinese medicine knowledge, encourage innovation research and development and application, clear benefit sharing mechanisms and forms.


Enhancing service capabilities is an entry point and a priority


Inheriting the development of traditional Chinese medicine, highlighting its distinctive advantages, and improving the service capabilities of Chinese medicine are the values ​​of traditional Chinese medicine and the focus of its work. The starting point and purpose of inheriting the development of traditional Chinese medicine is to serve the people's health.


"We must adhere to the people-centered development philosophy and strive to ensure and improve people's livelihood. The people's sense of gain is constantly increasing." "We must build more people on the basis of development to achieve practical results, solve difficulties in people's livelihood, and stick to the bottom line of people's livelihood, and constantly improve the people. A sense of achievement, well-being, and a sense of security.” During Premier Li Keqiang’s report on government work, the Great Hall of the People greeted him with warm applause. The term "people's livelihood" was mentioned more than a dozen times in the report, which reflects the central government's concern for the cause of people's livelihood.


Yu Wenming believes that the prime minister’s report emphasizes “improving the quality of medical and health services and making great efforts to solve the problem of medical treatment for the general public.” This is the focus of the government’s work, and it also puts forward further requirements for the work of Chinese medicine.


Establishing a basic medical security system to improve the fairness and accessibility of medical services and providing safe, effective, convenient, and inexpensive medical and health services for urban and rural residents is an important goal of medical reform. "Traditional Chinese medicine has the advantage of 'five resources'. In the basic medical security system, it is safe, convenient, effective, and economical in safeguarding people's health and ensuring and improving people's livelihood. It can protect basic, strong grassroots, and control costs. To play a role in amplifying the benefits of health care reform," Yu Wenming said. "With the adjustment of the government's supply side structure, Chinese medicine will play a role in its unique advantages and special status of 'five resources', and it will be used in basic medical and non-essential medical care. Further work."


According to the statistics from the Beijing Municipality, the average cost per person for treatment at the tertiary TCM hospitals in Beijing is 194.34 yuan, compared with 303 yuan for general hospitals; 80 yuan for closed fractures for traditional Chinese medicine doctors and 889 yuan for western medicines; With a 5% increase, medical insurance reimbursement costs can be reduced by 22.3 million yuan.


Participating in the service "Belt and Road" is a national mission and an opportunity for development


Recently, a news that cough syrup was popular in foreign countries has aroused widespread concern. The issue of “going out” of Chinese medicine has once again entered the public eye. Regarding the issue of why Chinese medicine should “go global” and how to “go out”, Yu Wen talked about some of his learning experiences in the government work report. Yu Wenming stated that the “going out” of Chinese medicine is not only a response to the General Secretary’s call and participation in the national “One Belt and One Road” initiative, but also an opportunity for the world to understand Chinese medicine and understand traditional Chinese medicine, and it also helps strengthen international academic exchanges. Promote the integration of original thinking of traditional Chinese medicine and modern technology, so that Chinese medicine can better serve human health.

After General Secretary Xi Jinping proposed the “One Belt and One Road” initiative, the state issued a series of strategic measures to comply with the requirements of the development of the times. In particular, the National Leading Group for Promoting the Construction of the “One Belt and One Road” reviewed and adopted the “One Belt, One Road” development plan for Chinese medicine ( "2016-2020", pointed out the direction and put forward requirements for the participation of Chinese medicine in the service "Belt and Road." The plan is clear. By 2020, a new pattern of all-round cooperation in the “Belt and Road” initiative of TCM will basically take shape. Thirty overseas Chinese medicine centers will be established in cooperation with countries along the route, 20 international TCM standards will be issued, 100 Chinese medicine products will be registered, and 50 will be built. Medical foreign exchange and cooperation demonstration base. The value of medical and health care in traditional Chinese medicine has been widely recognized by the public along the route, and more and more countries along the route have proposed to strengthen cooperation with China.

Over a year of planning and implementation, with the support of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Ministry of Finance, and the National Development and Reform Commission, China has established 17 overseas Chinese medicine centers. Chinese medicine has become an important feature of the “Belt and Road” initiative and has promoted countries along the route. Confidence in the people.

However, due to the relatively small amount of international special funds for TCM, the government’s use of fiscal funds is limited, making it difficult to maximize its effectiveness. It is difficult to better participate in the construction of “One Belt and One Road” and promote the internationalization and marketization of TCM. Based on this, Yu Wenming once again called for this year to establish a special fund for the “Belt and Road” initiative of Chinese medicine, to guide the active participation of social capital, to give full play to the synergies between financial funds and social capital, and to stimulate the market’s decisive role in resource allocation. To better support the implementation of the national "One Belt One Road" initiative.

Yu Wenming stated that this year marks the beginning of the implementation of the spirit of the 19th National Congress of the Party, the 40th anniversary of reform and opening up, and the crucial year for success in building a well-to-do society, implementing a healthy China strategy and launching the 13th Five-Year Plan. We should Conscientiously implement the requirements of the Party's Nineteenth Congress report and government work report on inheriting the development of traditional Chinese medicine, and give full play to the important role of Chinese medicine in serving the people's health and accelerating the implementation of a healthy China strategy.
