Beijing is­sued the “Healthy Beijing 2030” Out­line, putting for­ward a strat­egy for build­ing a healthy Beijing over the next ten years and be­yond.

On Septem­ber 7, 2017, Beijing is­sued the “Healthy Beijing 2030” Out­line (the Out­line), putting for­ward a strat­egy for build­ing a healthy Beijing over the next ten years and be­yond. The Out­line sets 28 ma­jor in­di­ca­tors to carry out a na­tional health pro­mo­tion cam­paign, op­ti­mise com­pre­hen­sive health ser­vices, im­prove a na­tional health in­sur­ance sys­tem, build a har­mo­nious, live­able and healthy en­vi­ron­ment, di­ver­sify the health in­dus­try, and pro­mote co­or­di­nated de­vel­op­ment of health in the Beijing-tian­jin-he­bei re­gion. Ac­cord­ing to the Out­line, the mod­ern hy­giene and health sys­tem fit for Beijing as a world- class har­mo­nious and live­able city will be built by 2030. At that time, Beijing will be­come the health­i­est area in China.

Pro­mot­ing Na­tional Health

Ac­cord­ing to the Out­line, the na­tional health pro­mo­tion cam­paign in­cludes five parts, namely health lit­er­acy pro­mo­tion ac­tion, na­tional fit­ness pop­u­lar­i­sa­tion ac­tion, men­tal health pro­mo­tion ac­tion, smoke-free en­vi­ron­ment pro­mo­tion ac­tion and ma­jor dis­ease pre­ven­tion and con­trol ac­tion.

To pro­mote health lit­er­acy, the Out­line pro­poses to im­prove the na­tional health ed­u­ca­tion sys­tem, strengthen health ed­u­ca­tion for ado­les­cents and chil­dren, and pop­u­larise a healthy lifestyle. For im­prov­ing the na­tional health ed­u­ca­tion sys­tem, Beijing will in­clude the pro­mo­tion of res­i­dents’ health lit­er­acy into long-term plan­ning for na­tional eco­nomic and so­cial de­vel­op­ment, im­ple­ment na­tional health lit­er­acy pro­mo­tion plan­ning, es­tab­lish mu­nic­i­pal and district-level pro­fes­sional health ed­u­ca­tion in­sti­tu­tions, im­prove health ed­u­ca­tion net­work, and strengthen stan­dard­ised man­age­ment. For strength­en­ing the health ed­u­ca­tion for ado­les­cents and chil­dren, Beijing will in­clude health ed­u­ca­tion into the na­tional ed­u­ca­tion sys­tem, fo­cus on pri­mary and sec­ondary schools, es­tab­lish health ed­u­ca­tion pro­mo­tion mech­a­nism at schools, in­clude health ed­u­ca­tion into teach­ers’ pre-ser­vice and on-the-job train­ing, cul­ti­vate full-time and part-time health ed­u­ca­tion teach­ing staff, strengthen health ed­u­ca­tion or­gan­i­sa­tion and man­age­ment in schools, es­tab­lish a home-school co­op­er­a­tion model for pri­mary and sec­ondary school stu­dents’ health man­age­ment, and ex­tend school health ed­u­ca­tion to fam­i­lies. For pop­u­lar­is­ing a healthy lifestyle, Beijing will im­ple­ment the na­tional nu­tri­tion plan­ning, deepen the “three re­duces and three healthy (re­duce oil, salt and sugar; healthy weight, bones and mouth cav­ity)” ac­tion, es­tab­lish and im­prove the nu­tri­tion mon­i­tor­ing sys­tem for res­i­dents, strengthen the train­ing of health vol­un­teers and give full play to them, and strengthen the guid­ance and in­ter­ven­tion for healthy lifestyles of fam­ily and high-risk in­di­vid­u­als. It is es­ti­mated that res­i­dents’ health lit­er­acy level will ex­ceed 45 per­cent by 2030, and per capita daily in­takes of salt and ed­i­ble oil will con­tinue to de­cline.

To pop­u­larise na­tional fit­ness, Beijing will en­cour­age and sup­port util­is­ing idle re­sources to trans­form and build na­tional fit­ness fa­cil­i­ties, im­ple­ment the na­tional fit­ness pro­gramme, vig­or­ously carry out win­ter sports, and re­lease guide­lines for sports and fit­ness. The city will es­tab­lish an ex­er­cise pre­scrip­tion li­brary for dif­fer­ent peo­ple, en­vi­ron­ments and phys­i­cal con­di­tions, to take ad­van­tage of na­tional fit­ness in health pro­mo­tion and the pre­ven­tion and treat­ment of chronic dis­eases, and to pro­mote the dis­ease con­trol and health ser­vice model in­te­grat­ing both sports and medicine.

To pro­mote men­tal health , Beijing will guide the pub­lic to care about men­tal health, strengthen mass men­tal health pro­mo­tion and men­tal dis­or­ders pre­ven­tion aware­ness, strengthen early de­tec­tion, di­ag­no­sis and treat­ment for com­mon men­tal dis­or­ders and be­hav­iors like de­pres­sion, anx­i­ety and child’s autism, and en­cour­age so­cial work­ers to par­tic­i­pate in men­tal health ser­vices. It is es­ti­mated that by 2030, more than 85 per­cent of the med­i­cal in­sti­tu­tions above Grade II will set up clin­i­cal psy­chother­apy de­part­ments; more than 70 per­cent of the pa­tients with se­vere men­tal dis­or­ders will ac­cept com­mu­nity re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion ser­vices; and the treat­ment rate of schizophre­nia will ex­ceed 85 per­cent.

To build a smoke-free en­vi­ron­ment, Beijing will fur­ther strengthen the cur­rent smoke-free Beijing plan, raise pub­lic aware­ness of to­bacco haz­ards and le­gal con­scious­ness, set stan­dard­ised smok­ing ces­sa­tion clin­ics, and pro­mote a smok­ing ces­sa­tion sys­tem. It is es­ti­mated that by 2030, smok­ing ces­sa­tion ser­vices with Beijing char­ac­ter­is­tics will form, which in­te­grates pro­fes­sional smok­ing ces­sa­tion clinic, smok­ing ces­sa­tion hot­line and sim­ple clin­i­cally smok­ing ces­sa­tion in­ter­ven­tion, so that the adult smok­ing rate will be con­trolled within 17 per­cent.

To im­ple­ment ma­jor dis­ease pre­ven­tion and con­trol, the Out­line pro­poses to im­ple­ment com­pre­hen­sive pre­ven­tion and con­trol of chronic dis­eases, strengthen pre­ven­tion and treat­ment of in­fec­tious dis­eases, and strengthen the source treat­ment of ma­jor an­thro­po­zoonoses. It is es­ti­mated that by

2030, the risk fac­tors for chronic dis­eases will be ef­fec­tively con­trolled; the stan­dard­ised treat­ment and man­age­ment rate of hy­per­ten­sion and di­a­betes in com­mu­ni­ties will reach 85 per­cent; the five-year sur­vival rate of can­cer pa­tients will in­crease by 15 per­cent; the pre­ma­ture death rate of ma­jor chronic dis­eases will be less than 9.9 per­cent; mu­nic­i­pal im­mu­ni­sa­tion plan­ning will reach the level of de­vel­oped coun­tries; and ma­jor in­fec­tious dis­eases will be kept at a sta­ble state.

Op­ti­mis­ing Health Ser­vices

The Out­line also pro­poses to im­ple­ment a se­ries of ini­tia­tives to op­ti­mise the health ser­vices for preg­nant and ly­ing-in women, in­fants, ado­les­cents, youth, the mid­dle-aged, the el­derly and the dis­abled, while fur­ther op­ti­mis­ing fam­ily plan­ning ser­vices.

To this end, Beijing will im­prove the ma­ter­nal and child health ser­vice sys­tem in­te­grat­ing ba­sic health care in­sti­tu­tions, ma­ter­nal and child health care in­sti­tu­tions, com­pre­hen­sive med­i­cal in­sti­tu­tions, spe­cialised women and chil­dren hos­pi­tals and re­lated re­search and teach­ing in­sti­tu­tions, to pro­mote the con­struc­tion of baby friendly hos­pi­tals and com­mu­ni­ties. The city will strengthen pe­di­atric and neona­tal con­struc­tion, build an or­derly and ef­fi­cient treat­ment net­work for se­vere ill­ness of new­borns, en­hance the treat­ment ca­pac­ity for se­vere ill­ness, es­tab­lish and im­prove the youth health ser­vice sys­tem, mon­i­tor the health of pri­mary and sec­ondary school stu­dents, strengthen the nu­tri­tion and health work at schools, and im­ple­ment nu­tri­tion in­ter­ven­tion. It will carry out reg­u­lar phys­i­cal ex­am­i­na­tion, oc­cu­pa­tional health ex­am­i­na­tion and oc­cu­pa­tional pro­tec­tion, build sports plat­forms for work­ers, and reg­u­larly carry out phys­i­cal mon­i­tor­ing work. Beijing will also carry out men­tal health care ser­vices for the el­derly, strengthen health guid­ance and com­pre­hen­sive in­ter­ven­tion for com­mon dis­eases and chronic dis­eases, and ad­vance health care for the el­derly. As for op­ti­mis­ing health ser­vices for the dis­abled, the city will de­velop a dis­abil­ity pre­ven­tion plan, carry out com­pre­hen­sive dis­abil­ity pre­ven­tion, es­tab­lish a so­cial dis­abil­ity pre­ven­tion and con­trol sys­tem, im­prove re­port­ing on child dis­abil­i­ties, and carry out early mon­i­tor­ing, treat­ment and in­ter­ven­tion for chil­dren with dis­abil­i­ties.

Fam­ily plan­ning is part of the na­tional pol­icy. The Out­line pro­poses to re­form fam­ily plan­ning ser­vice man­age­ment, build a fam­ily de­vel­op­ment pol­icy frame­work with themes of fer­til­ity sup­port, child care, youth de­vel­op­ment, el­derly sup­port and health care. At the same time, Beijing will con­tinue to gov­ern the new­born sex ra­tio, pro­mote pop­u­la­tion struc­ture and qual­ity, and equalise fam­ily plan­ning ser­vices for a tran­sient pop­u­la­tion.

Per­fect­ing the Na­tional Health In­sur­ance Sys­tem

Ac­cord­ing to the Out­line, the Beijing Mu­nic­i­pal Gov­ern­ment will per­fect the med­i­cal and health ser­vice sys­tem, med­i­cal in­sur­ance and se­cu­rity sys­tem and the phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal sup­ply se­cu­rity sys­tem.

For per­fect­ing the med­i­cal and health ser­vice sys­tem, the Beijing Mu­nic­i­pal Gov­ern­ment will build the med­i­cal ser­vice sys­tem in a ra­tio­nal lay­out, com­plete func­tions and a well- de­signed struc­ture. The scale of beds in med­i­cal in­sti­tu­tions in six ur­ban dis­tricts will be con­trolled, and a high-level med­i­cal and health ser­vice sys­tem will be es­tab­lished in the ur­ban sub- cen­tre. Ef­forts will be made to en­hance the sup­ply- end struc­tural re­form of the med­i­cal and health ser­vice through set­ting up the hi­er­ar­chi­cal di­ag­no­sis and treat­ment, pro­mot­ing the fam­ily doc­tor sign­ing ser­vice, to form a rea­son­able med­i­cal ser­vice or­der fea­tur­ing ini­tial di­ag­no­sis at pri­mary med­i­cal in­sti­tu­tion, two-way re­fer­ral, link­age be­tween low and high-level hos­pi­tals, and sep­a­rate treat­ment of se­ri­ous and mi­nor dis­eases, as well as en­cour­age so­cial funds to pro­vide re­lated ser­vices. To raise the level and qual­ity of med­i­cal ser­vice,

a group of re­gional med­i­cal cen­tres and State-level key clin­i­cal spe­cialised clus­ters will be built, and a city­wide med­i­cal qual­ity man­age­ment and con­trol in­for­ma­tion plat­form will be com­pleted. Clin­i­cal path­ways will be im­ple­mented, a pre­ven­tion and set­tle­ment sys­tem of med­i­cal dis­putes will be im­proved, and hu­man­is­tic care will be en­hanced through med­i­cal ser­vice. To raise tra­di­tional Chi­nese medicine ( TCM) ser­vice, a mu­nic­i­pal-level TCM med­i­cal cen­tre, a spe­cialised (spe­cial dis­ease) di­ag­no­sis cen­tre and a group con­sul­ta­tion cen­tre will be set up; the co­op­er­a­tion of the TCM and western medicine will be con­ducted to cope with ma­jor dis­eases.

For per­fect­ing the med­i­cal in­sur­ance and se­cu­rity sys­tem, the Beijing Mu­nic­i­pal Gov­ern­ment will unify ur­ban and ru­ral res­i­dents’ ba­sic med­i­cal in­sur­ance sys­tems, set up a dy­namic ad­just­ment mech­a­nism in which in­sur­ance con­tri­bu­tions are linked to res­i­dents’ in­come, with the se­cu­rity level grad­u­ally raised, se­cu­rity cov­er­age en­larged, and per­sonal pay­ment slowly re­duced. Modes of in­sur­ance pay­ment will be re­formed, and the cross-re­gion set­tle­ment of med­i­cal di­ag­no­sis and treat­ment will be pro­moted, in­volv­ing mi­grant res­i­dents in Beijing and Beijing cit­i­zens work­ing in other places con­sid­er­ing the house­hold reg­is­tra­tion sys­tem and the re­form of res­i­dence per­mit poli­cies. En­ter­prises and in­di­vid­u­als will be en­cour­aged to buy com­mer­cial health in­sur­ances and other sup­ple­men­tary in­sur­ances; com­mer­cial in­sur­ance com­pa­nies will be sup­ported to co­op­er­ate with med­i­cal, phys­i­cal ex­am­i­na­tion and nurs­ing in­sti­tu­tions to de­velop new health man­age­ment or­gan­i­sa­tions.

For per­fect­ing phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal sup­ply se­cu­rity sys­tem, drug and med­i­cal ap­pa­ra­tus pro­duc­ers will be spurred on for more in­put in R&D to en­hance prod­uct qual­ity. These pro­duc­ers will be en­cour­aged to ex­tend their ser­vice up­stream and down­stream in the sup­ply chain, in­no­vate cir­cu­la­tion modes, and re­duce in­ter­me­di­ate links of drug pro­cure­ment. The gov­ern­ment will use ba­sic drugs in a wider range, give the pri­or­ity to us­ing ba­sic drugs, en­hance the pric­ing su­per­vi­sion over drugs with lower de­gree of mar­ket­ing com­pe­ti­tion and high-value med­i­cal con­sum­ables, and per­fect drug price mon­i­tor­ing and in­for­ma­tion dis­clo­sure sys­tem.

Build­ing a Har­mo­nious, Live­able and Healthy En­vi­ron­ment

Ac­cord­ing to the Out­line, build­ing a har­mo­nious, live­able and healthy en­vi­ron­ment mainly in­clude car­ry­ing out a pub­lic health cam­paign, cre­at­ing a green and live­able eco­log­i­cal en­vi­ron­ment, and build­ing a safe and har­mo­nious so­cial en­vi­ron­ment.

In terms of con­duct­ing a pub­lic health cam­paign, the gov­ern­ment will push for­ward ur­ban-ru­ral en­vi­ron­men­tal san­i­ta­tion, adopt grid-based man­age­ment in san­i­tary ar­eas, and en­hance the en­vi­ron­men­tal and health in­fra­struc­ture in ru­ral ar­eas in­clud­ing san­i­tary toi­lets. A healthy city proper and vil­lages / towns will be first built to im­ple­ment a “healthy cell” pro­gramme and to shape a sound pat­tern in­te­grat­ing ur­ban and ru­ral ar­eas. The gov­ern­ment will per­fect the com­pre­hen­sive sys­tem of vec­tor pre­ven­tion and con­trol, ap­ply 100 per­cent of its grid-based man­age­ment to the sys­tem, im­prove its vec­tor su­per­vi­sion net­work, and reg­u­late and de­velop the mar­ket-based ser­vice for vec­tor pre­ven­tion and con­trol.

To cre­ate a green and live­able eco­log­i­cal en­vi­ron­ment, mea­sures will be taken in­clud­ing com­pre­hen­sive treat­ment of en­vi­ron­men­tal pol­lu­tion, guar­an­tee­ing safe wa­ter sup­ply, con­struct­ing green land­scape and leisure space, and im­prov­ing city ap­pear­ance and en­vi­ron­ment in ur­ban-ru­ral ar­eas. It is ex­pected in 2020 that the av­er­age con­tent of at­mo­spheric PM 2.5 (par­tic­u­late mat­ter that is 2.5 mi­crons in di­am­e­ter) falls to around 56 mi­crons per cu­bic me­tre, and the ra­tio of days with AQI (air qual­ity in­dex) val­ues no higher than 100 a year is 56 per­cent, with con­tin­u­ously im­proved air qual­ity in 2030. By 2020, the safety sec­tor of wa­ter sup­ply in cen­tral Beijing and the ur­ban sub­cen­tre will be 1.3 and then above 1.3 in 2030, with waste­water treat­ment ef­fi­ciency reach­ing above 99 per­cent in 2020. The cov­er­age rate of parks and green­belts within a 500-me­tre ra­dius in a built-up san­i­tary area will reach 85 per­cent in 2020, and in 2030, the per capita area of parks and green­belts will be 16.8 square me­tres and the for­est cov­er­age rate will be no lower than 45 per­cent. The in­te­grated col­lec­tion and treat­ment of garbage in both ru­ral and ur­ban ar­eas will be re­alised in 2030, with no dif­fer­ences in ur­ban-ru­ral en­vi­ron­men­tal san­i­ta­tion and the harm­less treat­ment of do­mes­tic garbage be­ing 99.8 per­cent.

In terms of build­ing a safer so­cial en­vi­ron­ment, ef­forts will be made to

im­prove ur­ban food safety, and build a food lo­gis­tics and dis­tri­bu­tion net­work in ra­tio­nal lay­out, which caters to peo­ple’s con­sump­tion de­mands and cov­ers both ur­ban and ru­ral ar­eas. The whole- course su­per­vi­sion and con­trol of food pro­duc­tion and pro­cess­ing, cir­cu­la­tion and cater­ing ser­vice will be en­hanced. The GMT (Good Man­u­fac­tur­ing Prac­tice) and GSP (Good Sup­ply Prac­tice) will be rigidly im­ple­mented to en­hance su­per­vi­sion over re­search and de­vel­op­ment, pro­duc­tion, op­er­a­tion and use of drugs and med­i­cal ap­pa­ra­tuses. A safety pro­duc­tion mech­a­nism coping with the cap­i­tal’s so­cioe­co­nomic de­vel­op­ment will be shaped to pre­vent and con­trol oc­cu­pa­tional dis­eases and im­ple­ment spe­cial treat­ment of oc­cu­pa­tional dis­ease haz­ards. Road and traf­fic la­bels will be im­proved, road safety fa­cil­i­ties will in­crease, traf­fic safety su­per­vi­sion and gov­er­nance will be con­sol­i­dated, and civilised travel will be ad­vo­cated to re­duce traf­fic ac­ci­dents.

Di­ver­si­fy­ing the Health In­dus­try

Ac­cord­ing to the Out­line, di­ver­si­fy­ing the health in­dus­try con­tain sup­port­ing mul­ti­ple forms of so­cial run­ning of med­i­cal in­sti­tu­tions, giv­ing im­pe­tus to in­no­va­tive de­vel­op­ment of the health in­dus­try, and quick­en­ing in­te­grated de­vel­op­ment of the health in­dus­try.

To sup­port mul­ti­ple forms of pri­vately owned med­i­cal in­sti­tu­tions, the gov­ern­ment will sup­port so­cial funds to open non­profit med­i­cal in­sti­tu­tions, spe­cialised med­i­cal in­sti­tu­tions like ob­stet­rics and pae­di­atrics, and com­mu­nity-based health ser­vice in­sti­tu­tions. Qual­i­fied in­di­vid­u­als are en­cour­aged to open clin­ics; pri­vately funded med­i­cal in­sti­tu­tions are sup­ported to con­duct med­i­cal re­search and con­tin­u­ing ed­u­ca­tion projects. The gov­ern­ment will also step up ef­forts to build a re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion nurs­ing ser­vice sys­tem, and spur so­cial funds to build re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion nurs­ing in­sti­tu­tions and to take part in trans­form­ing pub­lic hos­pi­tals into re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion nurs­ing in­sti­tu­tions through trustee­ship and co­op­er­a­tion.

To pro­mote in­no­va­tive de­vel­op­ment of the health in­dus­try, the gov­ern­ment will lead phys­i­cal ex­am­i­na­tion or­gan­i­sa­tions to run chain op­er­a­tion, sup­port them to trans­form into health man­age­ment in­sti­tu­tions to pro­mote phys­i­cal ex­am­i­na­tions and health man­age­ment ser­vice de­vel­op­ment. The State- and mu­nic­i­pal level spe­cial sci­en­tific and tech­no­log­i­cal projects will be used to sup­port the R&D and in­dus­tri­al­i­sa­tion of in­no­va­tive drugs, med­i­cal ap­pa­ra­tuses and or­thotics, as well as new biomed­i­cal ma­te­ri­als. Ef­forts will be made to pro­mote the high-end de­vel­op­ment of bio­med­i­cine, med­i­cal ap­pa­ra­tuses and re­lated in­dus­tries, ad­vance the con­struc­tion and de­vel­op­ment of Zhong­guan­cun Life Science Park, Dax­ing Bio­med­i­cine In­dus­trial Base and Beijing Yizhuang Biomed­i­cal Park, in which medicine, teach­ing, re­search, pro­vi­sional care for the el­derly and re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion are in­te­grated, in a bid to cre­ate world-lead­ing med­i­cal parks, the health in­dus­try with strong in­ter­na­tional com­pet­i­tive­ness and demon­stra­tion zones for med­i­cal ser­vice.

To quicken in­te­grated de­vel­op­ment of the health in­dus­try, the gov­ern­ment will sup­port the de­vel­op­ment of pri­mary sports or­gan­i­sa­tions, en­cour­age them to host am­a­teur sports com­pe­ti­tions, and build a group of out­door fit­ness and leisure bases with re­gional char­ac­ter­is­tics. The health­care tourism in­dus­tries will be in­te­grated, with projects fea­tur­ing healthy tourism. Sup­port will be given to en­large co­op­er­a­tion with over­seas med­i­cal in­sur­ance in­sti­tu­tions, de­velop the en­ter­prises in­te­grat­ing health and cul­ture to in­no­vate health cul­ture com­mu­ni­ca­tion.

Pro­mot­ing the Co­or­di­nated De­vel­op­ment of Health

The co­or­di­nated de­vel­op­ment of the Beijing-tian­jin-he­bei re­gion im­poses new re­quire­ments for the con­struc­tion of “Healthy Beijing.” Ac­cord­ing to the Out­line, the gov­ern­ment will op­ti­mise the lay­out of med­i­cal health re­sources for the re­gion, strengthen pub­lic health co­op­er­a­tion, and link med­i­cal ser­vice with so­cial se­cu­rity. A dis­ease pre­ven­tion and con­trol in­te­grated co­op­er­a­tion plat­form will be built, and a joint pre­ven­tion and con­trol mech­a­nism for ma­jor epi­demics and pub­lic health emergencies will be im­proved.

For op­ti­mis­ing med­i­cal health re­sources for the re­gion, Beijing-based med­i­cal in­sti­tu­tions will work with peer in­sti­tu­tions in Tian­jin and He­bei to open branches, set up new med­i­cal in­sti­tu­tions, co­op­er­ate among spe­cialised de­part­ments, and build re­gional med­i­cal cen­tres. Var­i­ous ex­changes in med­i­cal tech­nolo­gies, man­age­ment and aca­demic knowl­edge will be car­ried out to help fos­ter ad­van­ta­geous de­part­ments in Tian­jin and He­bei. To con­sol­i­date pub­lic health co­op­er­a­tion in the Bei­jingTian­jin-he­bei re­gion, the three places will en­hance the joint pre­ven­tion and con­trol of ma­jor dis­eases, co­op­er­ate in the pub­lic health and in ma­ter­nal and child health care, for ex­am­ple, set­ting up a re­gional com­mu­ni­ca­tion and co­op­er­a­tion plat­form of ma­ter­nal and chil­dren health ser­vice or­gans, as well as build a health per­for­mance eval­u­a­tion sys­tem. A re­fer­ral sys­tem among the three places will be im­proved; the sys­tem of physi­cians’ multi-sited li­cense and the mo­bil­ity of med­i­cal tal­ents will be ad­vo­cated. The co­op­er­a­tive con­struc­tion and pairingas­sis­tance will be en­hanced, tele-medicine will be greatly pro­moted, the man­age­ment mea­sures for ba­sic med­i­cal in­sur­ances will be per­fected, and a re­gional li­ai­son drug sup­ply sys­tem will be set up. Be­sides, the three places will bet­ter the co­or­di­nated health se­cu­rity mech­a­nism to en­able the in­ter­con­nec­tion of the peo­ple’s health in­for­ma­tion plat­forms and share the big data on med­i­cal and health care. A Beijing-tian­jinHe­bei med­i­cal re­search and tech­no­log­i­cal in­no­va­tion cen­tre will be ex­plored.

To­day, “Healthy Beijing” is widely ac­cepted by the pub­lic, with an im­proved de­vel­op­ment en­vi­ron­ment, hy­giene and health se­cu­rity sys­tem per­fected and health level of res­i­dents sta­bly on the rise. In the fu­ture, Beijing will up­hold its prin­ci­pals of “health first, gov­ern­men­tal lead­er­ship, deep­ened re­form and in­no­va­tive de­vel­op­ment,” and pay equal at­ten­tion to pub­lic wel­fare and fair­ness in health ser­vice, and main­tain and guar­an­tee peo­ple’s health.
