At the same time, we must see that in the new era, people have new expectations for health. To practice our party's original mission of protecting people's health, we should change the concept of promoting health work from the treatment of diseases to the people's health as the center, while solve the problem of difficulty and high cost in seeing the doctor, and deepen the three medical linkage reform. Efforts should be also made to popularize health knowledge, promote health education into the classroom, into the family, into the community, into the unit, and guide people to develop good behavior and lifestyle. She mentioned to strengthen health interventions, fully implement the National Nutrition Program, widely carry out radio gymnastics, interval exercises and other national fitness activities, and provide services for sleep health and psychological counseling intervention.

It’s necessary to strengthen the prevention and control of major diseases, promote early diagnosis and treatment and health management, improve the level of treatment, and extend the healthy lifespan. All departments should strengthen the organization and security, improve the promotion mechanism, strengthen the monitoring and assessment, make clear responsibility and coordination for all the tasks, avoid the formalism and the instant success, in order to ensure a fruitful Healthy China Initiative.
