In Hong Kong, the Hospital Authority has been setting up Chinese Medicine Centre for Training and Research (CMCTRs) since 2003 for delivering alternative health services, to complement Western Medicine services. This map shows the distribution of Chinese Medicine (CM) Centres in Hong Kong.

As depicted by brown cross symbols, a total of 16 CMCTRs in tripartite collaboration mode with non-government organizations and local universities are now in operation covering each of the 18 districts, except Islands and Yau Tsim Mong. There are also four CM Centres in bilateral mode of collaboration, shown by the orange cross symbols, which are located in urban Kowloon and Hong Kong Island. All CM Centres open six days a week and close on Sunday and public holiday.

Data for the map were obtained from Hospital Authority.
