On July 4, the “Retracing the Long March Road, Bringing Health to Aba” large-scale public welfare activity exclusively funded by Yangtze River Pharmaceutical Group was launched at Qipangou Community Health Center of Wenchuan County, Aba Prefecture, Sichuan Province.

Lasting over two hours, the gratuitous treatment was going in good order and solved the problems of all the patients, taking a successful first step on the long march to bring health to the Aba people.
