The implementation of the Healthy China Action has achieved remarkable results
Health is the eternal pursuit of human beings. Since the implementation of the Healthy China Action for three years, the health literacy of the public has been steadily improved, healthy lifestyles have been gradually promoted, and disease prevention and control work has achieved positive progress and remarkable results.
“At the beginning of the implementation of the Healthy China Action, the State Council made arrangements and requirements for action monitoring and assessment. By organizing the assessment, it effectively played the role of a ‘baton’.” Deputy Director of the Office of the Healthy China Action Promotion Committee, Director of the Planning Department of the National Health Commission Chang Mao Qun’an introduced that, focusing on solving the problems of difficult and expensive medical treatment, my country has taken multiple measures to implement the Healthy China Action. The health promotion policy system has been basically established, health risk factors have been effectively controlled, the ability to maintain health throughout the life cycle has been significantly improved, and major diseases have been effectively treated. Positive progress has been made in five areas, including containment and the growing atmosphere of national participation, and the construction of a healthy China has started well and is progressing smoothly.
In recent years, all member departments of the National Patriotic Health Campaign Committee and the Healthy China Action Promotion Committee have carried out solid environmental promotion actions. Especially after the outbreak of the new crown pneumonia, several rounds of patriotic health campaigns have been carried out across the country to clean up and rectify environmental sanitation to transform the environment. The health level of the population has been improved, the urban and rural environmental quality has been significantly improved, and various health and environmental indicators have continued to improve.
In the next step, the National Health Commission will work with relevant departments to further strengthen urban and rural environmental sanitation governance, create a healthy living environment, and effectively reduce the risk of disease transmission through the environment.
The ability to maintain health throughout the life cycle has been significantly improved
Focusing on key population groups, my country has improved its health security system and continuously improved its health service capabilities. The goals of the “Two Outlines” and the “13th Five-Year Plan” for women and children have been fully realized. The coverage rate of children’s eye care and vision examination services has reached 91.7%. keep falling.
Adolescents are at a critical stage of physical development, psychological development, social adaptation, and life growth. Student health is an important foundation for national health. Over the years, especially since the implementation of the Healthy China Action for three years, my country has always adhered to the concept of health first education, and effectively promoted the special action for health promotion in primary and secondary schools.
Statistics show that at present, 33% of the national students’ physical health standard test has reached the standard excellent and good rate. By 2021, 770,000 teachers will be equipped for physical health courses in schools at the basic education stage nationwide.
“Students’ health literacy and health level have been further improved, and schools’ health promotion awareness and health promotion ability have been further enhanced.” said Liu Peijun, deputy director and first-level inspector of the Department of Physical, Health and Arts of the Ministry of Education.
Protecting youth from tobacco harm is the key to promoting healthy youth development. In the next step, the National Health and Health Commission will work with relevant departments to prevent young people from being exposed to tobacco, and work together to create a tobacco control pattern in which the government, society, and individuals jointly build, co-govern and share, and lay a solid foundation for further promoting the construction of a healthy China.
Taking multiple measures to ensure the supply of mass sports services
In recent years, under the guidance of the Healthy China Action Promotion Office and the joint efforts of all sectors of society, the National Fitness Action has achieved great results.
“The General Administration of Sports of the People’s Republic of China organizes a nationwide survey on the status of national fitness activities and monitoring of national physique every five years. From the data, in 2020, the proportion of people who regularly participate in physical exercise will reach 37.2%, an increase of 3.3 percentage points over 2014. The pass rate of the national physique determination standard has reached 90.4%.” Gao Yuanyi, deputy director of the Group Department of the General Administration of Sports of the People’s Republic of China, introduced that the facilities and venues for national fitness have been continuously enriched and improved.
The previously released “Opinions on Building a Higher-Level National Fitness Public Service System” proposed to build a multi-level fitness facility network and a 15-minute fitness circle in urban communities.
Carry out the national fitness venues and facilities to make up for shortcomings, and support the construction of sports parks, fitness centers, fitness trails, county-level stadiums, and football fields… In promoting the solution of the problem of “where to go for fitness”, the General Administration of Sports of the People’s Republic of China has frequently made “practical measures” .
In addition, how to scientific fitness has become an important issue in promoting national fitness. Gao Yuanyi appealed that scientific fitness requires the joint efforts of the whole society, but also the efforts of the bodybuilders themselves. I hope everyone can master better fitness skills and work together to build a healthy China.
