Officials of the National Health Commission of the People's Republic of China (NHCPRC) and March of Dimes Birth Defects Foundation of China (MDBDFC) jointly held a public welfare activity on June 14 in Wuhan, central China's Hubei Province, to donate funds to children with birth defects and improve public health.

During the activity, leaders from the MDBDFC, Department of Maternal and Child Health Services and Hubei Health and Family Planning Commission (HHFPC), delivered speeches and deployed birth defects prevention work.

They donated nutrients for mothers and infants and public welfare funds for the detection and screening of birth defects. They also offered professional training lessons for related staff members.

In addition, officials investigated the work of program-implementing institutions and sent an expert team to carry out free medical consultations and disease screening activities in Hongan County, a well-known old revolutionary base area.

A total of over 200 people attended the event, including experts from NHCPRC, MDBDFC, HHFPC and Wuhan Women and Children's Health Care Center, and representatives from relevant medical institutions, birth defects assistance agencies and neonatal disease screening departments.
