Chinese doctors bring light to African patients

Chinese doctors bring light to African patients
- Liu is among thousands of medical aid personnel dispatched to 41 African countries in 2016. Their endeavors received a warm response at a conference -- "China-Africa Health Cooperation, From Commitments to Actions" -- in Pretoria, South Africa earlier this week.
Representatives from 31 African countries spoke highly of China's support for African countries. China had also signed an agreement on a free-cataract-surgery program with African countries, including Sierra Leone.
But it was not the first time for eye surgery programs. Since the China-Africa Brightness Action initiative was launched in 2010, eye doctors from China have traveled to Africa frequently to treat cataracts.
