China Central Television (CCTV) released the list of the 'Most Beautiful Rural Doctors' on March 10, 2014. After touching stories of rural doctors were reported, audiences expressed strong feelings about each of them.

The event, launched by CCTV on October 16, 2013, extensively collected moving stories of rural doctors through public recommendations, and investigative work by journalists. In this context, "beautiful" doesn't refer to physical appearance, more the beauty of the soul and being a dutiful worker.

In mid-December last year, the organizing committee of the activity selected twenty nominees for the 'Most Beautiful Rural Doctors' and put them on the official website for the public to choose the final 10 'Most Beautiful Rural Doctors' and 10 'Rural Doctors Worth Special Consideration'.

The award ceremony was held in Beijing on March 11, 2014. Each of the 10 'Most Beautiful Rural Doctors' was awarded with 200,000 yuan (US$ 32,540), and each of the 10 'Rural Doctors Worth Special Consideration' was awarded with 50,000 yuan (US$ 8,145).

During the event, CCTV made great efforts to cover this news. Many programs on CCTV had special sections for the coverage.

After touching stories of rural doctors were reported, audiences expressed strong feelings about each of them. Leadership at all levels of government and social forces in various forms provide care and assistance for rural doctors, and they are working to solve the difficulties of being a rural doctor.

The organizing committee said, the event shows CCTV's concern for doctors' hardships. CCTV will continue to run the "Seeking the Most Beautiful Rural Doctors" campaign to support rural health services.

The 10 'Most Beautiful Rural Doctors' are Kurmanbek • Sue Man (Xinjiang), Xie Xuzhong (Guangxi), Liu Yaling (Shaanxi), Bu Qiong (Tibet), An Fujiu (Inner Mongolia), Hou Fangjie (Sichuan), Guo Guangjun (Henan), Li Chunhua (Heilongjiang), Fang Xiaomei (Guizhou), and Wang Huanyun (Hubei).
