In terms of public health, there are articles on state management in environmental health, the establishment of public health system, self-management on personal hygiene, and management of transmittable diseases in China in the traditional society and after the emergence of western public health system. On the subject of the history of medicine, articles in this volume focus on the various topics regarding how Chinese medicine can take care of our bodies: how to define a child by age and treatments of pediatric diseases, changing views on inner organs in Chinese medicine, and a case analysis on women’s bodies and reproductive functions.
