08:39, May 18, 2012

BEIJING, May 17 (Xinhua) -- The Ministry of Health (MOH) and the People's Liberation Army (PLA) have created an emergency coordination plan to help deal with medical emergencies more efficiently.

The MOH said Thursday it has signed an agreement with the PLA General Staff Department and General Logistics Department to create the plan.

The plan covers operational support, technical preparation, information releases, consultations, exercises and training exchanges, as well as clarifies procedures concerning PLA participating in handling medical emergencies.

The plan is intended to bring the PLA's role in dealing with emergencies into full play in order to enhance cooperation between civilians and the military, the statement said.

Minister of Health Chen Zhu said at a signing ceremony earlier this week that the agreement will "consolidate the integration of military and civilian power" and effectively safeguard public health.

The plan will be conducive to boosting the country's overall ability to handle medical emergencies, Chen said.
