At the stroke of midnight, we unveiled a Mandarin Chinese version of our website so that speakers of the world’s second most popular language can learn all about the condition (known to them as 后非那雄胺综合症) in their native tongue.
According to Ethnologue, more than 1.11 billion people currently speak Mandarin.
Couple that with world’s 1.13 billion English speakers and 543 million Spanish speakers and we’re able to boast 2.78 billion people worldwide who can now access our PFS news, medical literature and other resources.
To log onto our Mandarin content, simply click the Chinese flag to the left of the search box at the top of any PFSFoundation.org page. Then toggle back to English by clicking the American flag, or to Spanish by clicking the Spanish flag.
Inspired by the fact that PFS patient David Blanco of Madrid had translated our site into Spanish pro bono, Zhai made the same generous offer, which we immediately accepted.
And the rest, as they say in China, is 历史.
If you live in a Chinese-speaking country, or in a country like the US that has large Chinese communities, please share the link to our Chinese site across as many pertinent platforms as possible, including hair-loss forums and Facebook pages. Ditto any Chinese doctors who may be treating you or a loved one.
Anyone living in the US who suffers from PFS should report his/her symptoms to the US Food and Drug Administration. Anyone living outside the US who suffers from PFS should report his/her symptoms to the US Food and Drug Administration as well as to his/her national drug-regulatory agency, as directed on our Report Your Side Effects page.
If you or a loved one are suffering from PFS, and feeling depressed or unstable, do not hesitate to contact the PFS Foundation via our Patient Support hotline: firstname.lastname@example.org
