Recently, the program of “index of Chinese resident’s physical test health” was kicked off in Beijing. The index would be compiled by the state-run Xinhua News Agency, and guided by medical department of Peking University.
The index aims to give quantified assessment of the general health level of the Chinese residents and the general health trend. This would help to transform the health ecosystem in China from “centering on treatment “ to “centering on health”.
The index would highlight the major kinds of chronic diseases and look at numbers from each provinces and major cities.
This would help to spot the demographic of chronic disease and relevant trends, which would help policymaker to enhance the general health level of the country. (Source:baijiahao)
