Anhui province will roll out a slew of measures to boost the development of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), according to a draft regulation released by the Department of Justice of Anhui Province.

The department has begun soliciting public opinion on the draft regulation.

The document encourages TCM hospitals to set up medical alliances.

Governments above the county level should leverage TCM to handle public health emergencies, according to the regulation.

The preventive treatment of disease, valued by the TCM sector, is required to be promoted around medical institutions and TCM hospitals at grassroots level.

The regulation also calls for more efforts to protect local Chinese medical herbs, standardize the TCM industry and develop it on a large scale.

It is necessary to focus on cultivating TCM talent as well, according to the document.
