According to a report jointly released by the China Population Association and the National Family Planning Commission, China’s infertility rate has climbed from 2.5-3% 20 years ago to 12.5%-15% in 2019. More than 40 million patients nationwide, or one in eight couples, suffer from infertility. Meanwhile, due to environmental pollution, postponement of childbearing, life stress, and other reasons, the number of infertile couples continues to increase.
Muxi Li, director of JD Health’s TCM hospital said at the ceremony that the addition of Dr. Runsan Xu will greatly enhance the hospital’s capability in providing treatment for infertility problems and carrying out academic research in relevant fields.
