Interns, student employee at the Max Planck Institute for Social Law and Social Policy, and volunteer for the German branch of Médecins du Monde, discusses the health-related aspects of China’s Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) and evaluates the state of China’s health care and its role in the international arena. Zhelyazkova writes, “Chinese authorities’ failure on public health level puts a question mark behind [China President] Xi Jinping’s pledges of action in the context of BRI and poses a challenge for the WHO and the international community in finding an approach to effectively utilize all provided resources while assuring the quality of the provided aid” (8/2).
