Provide Health Education
Health Care and Medical Consultation Services
Our Council believes that the concept of “health” is a state of complete physical, psychological, mental and social well-being perceived by an individual. We focused on prevention and education in the early stage such as health education, health advice, exhibition and health check. Our Council set up the Health Care Service Sub-committee in 2000 to develop health care services. Three Chinese Medicine projects have been developed and two community clinics have been set up for the elderly.
Assisted by The Chinese University of Hong Kong and funded by Mr. and Mrs. W.N. CHIEN and ACCA CHARITABLE FOUNDATION LIMITED, our Council established C.C.
