Improving Chinese Health In 2018 Requires Political Will, Focus On NCDs, Greater Contribution To Global Health

The Lancet: China through the lens of health in 2018 and beyond
Editorial Board

“…China does not have a documented global health strategy but has already played a distinctive part in global health through its commitment to domestic health security, its health aid program, health governance, and knowledge exchange … Global health should be identified as a key foreign policy objective for the Government of China. … Indeed, achieving sustainability and prosperity requires a long-term vision, which always puts health at the top of the political agenda, and strong political will to integrate health into all policies. To improve Chinese health in 2018 and beyond, more ambitious and aggressive plans to strengthen national capacity for tobacco control, prevent and control non-communicable diseases, and contribute more to global health will be essential” (3/17).
