Global Times US Edition - - TOPNEWS -

China ranks 59th among 131 coun­tries in health mod­ern­iza­tion, a report re­leased on Satur­day said.

He Chuanqi, head of the Chi­nese Academy of Sciences’ China Cen­ter for Mod­ern­iza­tion Re­search, sug­gested a road map for China’s health devel­op­ment in five ar­eas: sys­tems, daily life, ser­vice, en­vi­ron­ment and treat­ment.

Based on data from 2014 and ear­lier, the report said 25 coun­tries are con­sid­ered “de­vel­oped” in health, in­clud­ing Swe­den; 22 coun­tries “mod­er­ately de­vel­oped” in health, in­clud­ing Rus­sia; 33 coun­tries “pri­mar­ily de­vel­oped,” such as China; and 51 coun­tries “un­der-de­vel­oped,” in­clud­ing Kenya.

The report also shows that among the 45 health in­dexes, China has 18 which have ex­ceeded the world av­er­age, while eight close to or equal­ing the av­er­age of de­vel­oped coun­tries.

In 2016, the State Coun­cil, China’s cab­i­net, is­sued a guide­line on build­ing a healthy China. Xin­hua
