The establishment of the Peking Central Hospital in 1918 marked China’s foray into the modernisation of the health care and medical system in the country. Indeed, it was the fulfilment of the lifelong dream of its founding director Dr Wu Lien-teh,

who went on to help further established over 20 medical, quarantine and medical education institutions,

during his 30 year span in China.


Known as the founder of modern medicine and epidemic prevention in China, Dr Wu Lien-teh’s conviction and heroic feat in wiping out the plague epidemic in northeastern China had made his mission of modernisation of China’s health care system possible. In the withering years of the Qing Dynasty in 1910-1911, imperilled by potential encroachment from neighbouring countries, the plague epidemic emerging in Harbin in 1910-1911 threatened to run down the country and

change the political landscape of China.


The chronic inefficiency of the Manchu Empire, with its antiquated health system, was in no disposition to mitigate, let alone, halt the epidemic onslaught. It took the conviction of a little known Malayan-born doctor Wu Lien-teh, who was looking for a higher purpose in life, to overcome prevailing ignorance and prejudices, and with the unambiguous critical support from the Beijing government, to push through the much needed urgent cum radical medical and health care reforms to ultimately save the day.





在清朝衰落的 1910-1911 年,受到邻国潜在侵占的威胁,1910-1911 年在哈尔滨出现的瘟疫流行威胁着整个国家并改变中国的政治格局。
