Shen spoke highly of the efforts and dedication of women medical workers in the battle against COVID-19.

Noting that it is a major task for women's federations to unite women to contribute to winning the battle against COVID-19 and promoting economic and social development, Shen stressed that women's federations at all levels should publicize the stories of female role models on the front line of the anti-epidemic battle to fully showcase China's strength, spirit and efficiency, and encourage women to play a role in achieving the two centennial goals.

Women's federations were urged to continue to serve women medics, help establish platforms, provide opportunities and create conditions to enhance their professionalism, and help solve their difficulties in looking after elderly family members and raising children.

Shen hoped that women medical workers will always place people's lives above everything else, continue to implement regular epidemic prevention and control measures, protect people's safety and health, and publicize epidemic prevention and control and health knowledge. 

Women medical workers were also urged to motivate more women to create and share healthy lives, help build a "Healthy China" and win the battle against poverty.

Huang Xiaowei, Secretary of the Leading Party Members' Group of the ACWF and Vice-President and First Member of the Secretariat of the ACWF, presided over the symposium.
