China on Friday launched a massive project to archive ancient medical books in order to promote the preservation of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), according to a joint statement from two government bodies.

The project, part of an ancient document preservation program introduced in 2006, will be the most comprehensive archival of TCM writings since 1949, according to a statement from the Ministry of Culture and State Administration of TCM.

The size of the project is not yet known, although a report issued last June said it will include at least 2,800 documents.

The statement said the project will also include medical writings by ethnic groups and writings from overseas.
