Plans are being put in place increase China’s citizens’ average life expectancy to 77.3 by 2020, and then 79 by 2030, which is up from 76.34 in 2015. And this is all part of a plan on health development spanning the next 15 years.

The “Healthy China 2030” blueprint, released Tuesday by the Communist Party of China Central Committee and the State Council, includes 29 chapters that cover areas such as public health services, environment management, the medical industry, and food and drug safety.  

While acknowledging the country’s health achievements so far, the blueprint noted that industrialization, urbanization, an aging population, as well as environmental and lifestyle changes, have created new challenges to the health of the people. It also says state-level strategies are needed to solve “major and long-term health-related issues.”
