The State Administration of Traditional Chinese Medicine released the results of the 2016 Chinese Medicine Health Culture Literacy Survey on the 28th. In 2016, the national Chinese medicine health culture knowledge popularization rate and Chinese citizens' Chinese medicine health culture literacy were significantly higher than in 2014.
According to the survey, in 2016, the popularization rate of Chinese medicine health culture reached 91.86%, which was significantly higher than the 84.02% penetration rate in 2014. The reading rate and trust rate of Chinese medicine health culture knowledge reached 89.70% and 89.30%, respectively, while the action rate was relatively low at 52.83%. The action rate indicator reflected the public's application of the knowledge of Chinese medicine to daily life. Chad Zhong, director of the Office of the State Administration of Traditional Chinese Medicine, said that the public has largely realized the transformation of Chinese medicine health culture knowledge from “know” to “letter”, but the action barrier between “letter” and “go” needs Further break.
In 2016, the Chinese citizens' health culture literacy level was 12.85%, that is, more than 12 out of every 100 people aged 15 to 69 years old had basic Chinese medicine health culture literacy. The survey measured the level of Chinese citizens' health culture literacy from five dimensions. Among them, the “Chinese medicine public appropriate method literacy level” was significantly lower than the other four dimensions, indicating that the public's demand for Chinese medicine health culture knowledge has been mastered. The theory of Chinese medicine knowledge has become an appropriate method for understanding the application of traditional Chinese medicine.
