Prof. Pak-Chung Ho: “My name is Pak-Chung Ho, and I’m the Professor and Chairman of the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the University of Hong Kong. Currently, I’m also the President of the Hong Kong College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists.”

Dr. Zeyi Cao: “Yes, and I’m Dr. Cao Zeyi. I’m the Vice-President of the Chinese Medical Association and I’m also the President of the Society of Obstetrics and Gynecology of China.”

Prof. Pak-Chung Ho: “We are now at the FIGO World Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists in Washington, D.C. We’re talking about why we should set up an ob-gyn web page in Chinese. Professor Cao, perhaps you can say why it is important to have an ob-gyn web page in Chinese?”

Dr. Zeyi Cao: “Yes, I think an ob-gyn home page is very important in China. In China, we have a huge population; in our society we have more than 600 million women and we also have 400,000 ob-gyn doctors. They need to exchange their experiences and be able to get in contact with others in the ob-gyn field throughout the world. I think this website may be very helpful for Chinese doctors and Chinese women.”

Prof. Pak-Chung Ho: “I also believe that, because the Chinese are different from the Caucasians, some of the diseases may be different from those in the Caucasian women so I think it is important to have a web page that caters for the Chinese. Don’t you agree?”

Dr. Zeyi Cao: “Yes, I agree. There are some differences but we have some special areas and some special problems of the female including lifestyle, the disease spectrum, and even the different ways of treatment. So I think this is not only for the Chinese people – women and doctors, but it will also benefit doctors from around the whole world.”

Prof. Pak-Chung Ho: “Professor Cao, I wonder whether you have any preliminary plans on how you’re going to set it up? 

Dr. Zeyi Cao: “I hope if OBGYN.net comes to China, we’ll all have to organize the aims and different problems in the medical colleges and in different hospitals, and those doctors get into OBGYN.net and possibly we can make this work in Chinese. Maybe it will be much easier for the Chinese doctors or the Chinese people to understand.”

Prof. Pak-Chung Ho: “Perhaps we can work together; the obstetricians and gynecologists of Hong Kong together with those in main land China to produce this web page together with maybe the OBGYN.net.”
