The traditional Chinese medicine therapy is popular in the Liangzhou District with more than 1,200 Chinese medicine doctors providing services in the hospitals of all levels here. People suffering from common ailments and frequently-occurring diseases are entitled to pay less if choosing traditional Chinese medicine therapy. This policy benefited 1.3 million person-times here with the remission of treatment cost totaling about 10 million yuan in 2010. (Xinhua/Nie Jianjiang)
