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.
