China implements healthy China initiative

Added On July 17, 2019

With a focus on disease prevention and promoting good physical health, the guideline proposed 15 special campaigns to "intervene in health influencing factors, protect full-life-cycle health and prevent and control major diseases."
A 2019-2030 action plan devised by a newly-established State Council special committee was also made public Monday.
The plan specifies the objectives and tasks of each campaign, as well as the responsibilities of different actors in the campaigns.
Major health concerns in society, including psychological health, student myopia, child obesity, and cancer, will be covered by the campaigns.
In 2016, the Communist Party of China Central Committee and the State Council released the "Healthy China 2030" blueprint, which covered areas such as public health services, environment management, the medical industry and food and drug safety.
