Chinese Family Planning Enforcers Working As Child Development Counselors In Pilot Program

The Economist: Family Planning: Enforcing with a smile
“…[Qin Shuhui] is a member of a 1 million-strong army of family planning officials whose mission is to enforce China’s one-child policy. … Ms. Qin is part of a small pilot program that began in November, involving just 69 workers in the prefecture of Shangluo. It is aimed at changing the way that employees of the National Health and Family Planning Commission do their work. The idea is to convert enforcers into childhood development counselors. The government will examine whether Shangluo’s experiment might serve as a model for the rest of the country…” (1/10).
