Questions are being asked about the quality of medical care being provided to Chinese peacekeepers serving on UN missions around the world.
People’s Liberation Army soldier Zhang Kegong, who spent 16 months as a peacekeeper in Liberia, said medicines were hard to find in the West African country and medical equipment even scarcer. If a peacekeeper fractured a bone, the lack of an X-ray machine could necessitate their evacuation to a neighbouring country for treatment.
