  A message from the Director


Health is not everything of your life, however, without health you will lose everything in your life.
Health is the basis as well as a goal of social development.
To focus on health and on development are the common trend in the world.
China is facing multiple burdens of social transition, population transition and disease transition. People are now paying more attention to health and investing more in human capitals. The interaction of these transitions has made health a major issue in the country like the tip of an iceberg emerging out of the water.
At the beginning of the twenty-first century, there are ample opportunities as well as challenges. We shall face them with positive attitude, scientific solutions, rapid responses, and common actions.
