This chapter discusses the medical services provided to the refugees. There was a shortage of doctors, so medical practitioners from Hong Kong were introduced and allowed to practise in Macao. The supply of medicines was also a problem, which was divided into two parts, prescriptions and stock. With limited resources in hand, the doctors and the consulate staff had to make a balance between using effective but expensive medicines and using other low-cost alternatives with the same effects. Measures were also taken to prevent abuses to the system.
