Promotion of educational and medical activities in remote regions
(1) Sustainable policies for education in remote regions: FJCU established the FJCU Rural Caring Group, which has been taking students to remote regions of Taiwan during winter and summer vacations to volunteer since 2006. In 2014, the FJCU Rural Caring Center was founded to promote the Ministry of Education’s Distance Remedial Instruction Project, the Online Learning and Mentor Project, and the Teacher Training Project for Communities; have corporations contribute resources; and also integrate resources from elementary schools, secondary schools, and agencies in remote communities.
(2) Continued provision of medical services in remote areas: Since the opening of the FJCU Hospital in 2017, doctors specializing in clinical fields of medicine from the hospital and the FJCU Rural Caring Center have been providing free medical services in chosen remote regions. In addition, Cultural Health Stations (70 of which have been set up among 155 tribal villages in the northern part of Taiwan) are used as health care centers for the elderly of indigenous peoples in remote areas. A cloud database has been established by compiling information on the elderly people's health indices, nutrition, and lifestyle to serve as an early warning network to safeguard their physical and mental health.
