Recently, the State Council issued opinions on the implementation of Healthy China Initiative, and Healthy China Initiative (2019-2030) was introduced at the national level. Healthy China Initiative focuses on the current major health problems and influencing factors, around the two cores of disease prevention and health promotion, will carry out 15 major special actions, refine the "national standards" in the health field, and strive to make the people keep fit.


The document specifies the main indicators of health China action. In the field of health, it is proposed that by 2022, the average life expectancy is 77.7 years, and by 2030 it will reach 79 years.

One of the highlights of Healthy China Initiative is to start from the very beginning of the factors affecting health, and implement the "prevention-oriented"concept. In the next 10 years, the national health literacy level will be significantly improved, and health science is more standardized and scientific.


Special initiatives are designed for the four key groups of people, women, infants and children, primary and secondary school students, workers, the elderly, including  a positive response to the problems these people face and a comprehensive intervention, which is also one of the highlights of Healthy China Initiative.

Healthy China Initiative clearly indicates that it will implement prevention and treatment work for four major chronic diseases: cardiovascular diseases, cancer, chronic respiratory diseases and diabetes. The Healthy China Initiative will sort out solutions to the problems of prevention and control for major diseases and give guidance and suggestions to the public from the aspects of self-health management, diet, exercise and other lifestyle.
