Plan aims to curb dis­abil­ity risks

China Daily (USA) - - POLICY REVIEW -

The State Coun­cil pub­lished a Na­tional Dis­abil­ity Preven­tion Ac­tion Plan (2016-20). Pre­mar­i­tal and preg­nancy health check­ups must be more widely uti­lized, the plan said, as well as pre­na­tal screen­ing and di­ag­no­sis, to lower the rate of con­gen­i­tal dis­eases. At the same time, dis­ease screen­ing of new­borns should be en­larged to cover more dis­eases, and dis­eases in par­tic­u­lar re­gions should be brought un­der con­trol.
