JD Takes Action to Ease Medicine Shortages in Rural Areas


by Tong Shen

JD Logistics helped deliver a first batch of 30,000 oximeters from Danyang, Jiangsu province to Lanzhou, capital of Gansu province, on January 6, to secure sufficient medical product supply in rural area. The oximeters were provided by the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development and the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology.

After it was announced that there was an urgent need for transportation of medical supplies, JD Logistics exerted its supply chain advantages immediately, dispatched human and transportation resources on call, and delivered the medical supplies to rural areas. The 30,000 sets of oximeters will be distributed to 86 counties in Gansu province.

JD Logistics has activated a prioritized mechanism for the delivery of medical products, and extended the working hours for last-mile delivery to enable smooth rural logistics and distribution.

JD Health is also dedicated to ease the medicine shortages in rural areas with its own specialty offerings. The “JD Health Emergency Medicine Box” public welfare project has been launched recently, as a joint initiative of JD Health and China Social Assistance Foundation to support rural areas. With the support of 1,810 merchants on JD Health, the first batch antipyretic medicine will be donated to 37,000 rural people in Henan, Guizhou, Gansu, Shaanxi and Guangxi provinces.
