9–13 January 2019 | Lushui, China



Prof. Emily Y. Y. Chan, a GCR member, took a site selection trip to Lushui City, Yunnan Province. The trip was part of the Ethnic Minority Health Project conducted by the Collaborating Centre for Oxford University and CUHK for Disaster and Medical Humanitarian Response. The aim of the trip was to select potential sites and explore the feasibility of mobile communication technology assisting health education interventions in the community.


As the person in charge, Prof. Chan took part in several exchange activities with local residents, including conducting interviews with clinic/village doctors, school headmasters and local non-governmental organisations. Specific topics included local demographic information, personal and household Internet and mobile device coverage, specific health education needs and the best months for potential future health educations.
