On the morning of June 10, a donation ceremony was held at Central South University, during which AIER Eye Hospital Group donated 10 million yuan to the medical staff of the affiliated hospitals of Central South University who bravely helped to fight against COVID-19 in the frontline.

Hunan Xiangjiang Charity Foundation that was initiated by Mr. Chen Bang and Mr. Li Li, the two founders of AIER Eye Hospital Group, signed a donation agreement with Central South University, which will support the "double first-class"  university project, and the development of its medical disciplines.

AIER Eye Hospital Group is a university-enterprise cooperative enterprise with Central South University. Since the establishment of AIER School of Ophthalmology, CSU in 2013, jointly found by AIER and CSU, the two sides have complemented each other’s advantages and jointly built a model of university-enterprise cooperation, accumulating experience in actively promoting the reform and innovation of the medical education system.

Salute to all medical staff, AIER rewards them for their benevolence and selflessness

At the beginning of the new year, COVID-19 suddenly broke out and swept the world. The medical staff of the affiliated hospitals of CSU quickly responded to the government's call and actively devote themselves to Wuhan, Huanggang, and other front-line cities to fight against the virus. At the same time, they also took on their responsibility for epidemic prevention and control in Hunan province, bravely protecting their homes and lives.


Mr. Chen Bang awarded a special grant to the representatives of the medical staff of Central South University.

Impressed by the efforts of the front-line medical staff, AIER Group decided to honor all front-line medical staff of Xiangya. "This is a heartfelt gesture and a tribute from us." said Mr. Chen Bang, chairman of AIER Eye Hospital Group, he hopes to take this opportunity to honor the benevolence of doctors and call on more doctors to practice their glorious mission.

AIER has demonstrated the responsibilities of Chinese enterprises with swift action at the beginning of the outbreak. It launched several targeted donations to support epidemic prevention and control. Besides, 1824 AIER's medical staff actively devote themselves to epidemic prevention and control, of which 230 people directly participated in the front-line treatment of patients with COVID-19. As an international eye hospital group, AIER and its overseas teams worked together to overcome difficulties, deploying domestic and foreign medical materials through multiple channels and giving full play to the advantages of internationalization. AIER realized the "cloud sharing" of its experience in epidemic prevention and control through online seminars and "Guidelines for COVID-19 prevention and control in Eye Hospitals".

It is understood that AIER School of Ophthalmology, CSU,  jointly established by AIER Eye Hospital Group and Central South University in 2013, is the first specialized ophthalmology school in China, rewriting the history of the absence of a specialized ophthalmology school in China. It is a landmark and a beneficial innovation and exploration of the cooperation between social capital and universities.

The college has made the combination of ophthalmic talent training, scientific research, and clinical practice possible. It has cultivated a large number of clinical, scientific, and academic talents for the domestic eye care industry, and has made active contributions to the development of the industry and the training of ophthalmic talents in China.
