Abstract

In October 2016, the leadership team of the Communist Party of China (CPC) adopted a plan aiming to build a healthy China over the next 15 years. The strategic tasks, mainly focused on promoting healthy lifestyles, optimising health services, improving health protection, building a healthy environment and developing the health industry, were proposed to deal with the health problems faced by China. According to the plan, China’s health plan is likely to undergo a major change.
