Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao Saturday said China should establish a children's leukemia center.
Wen spoke during his visit to the Beijing Children's Hospital and hearing proposals to that end made by the hospital's honorary president Hu Yamei.
Before the forthcoming International Children's Day, Wen came to the hospital to extend warm regards to the children and the medical and social staff who work with the children.
He urged children throughout the country to study hard, keep fit, abide by public morality and train themselves into quality personnel for the country's construction.
The premier also called on the whole society to show concerns and love for children.
