According to Dr. Wei, based on a decade of research data, at-home HPV tests deliver almost 100% accuracy, and e-commerce provides a convenient way for everyone to acquire self-test products, instead of relying on limited hospital resources.
Additionally, JD users can join this activity through the “Orders Charity” program jointly hosted by JD Finance and JD Foundation, by which they can exchange their payment points for “charity energy” free of charge to lift the organizers’ donation amount and encourage greater public participation. They can also donate money directly to the campaign.
