National S&T Drive for Better Health

To boost people's health through S&T activities, an S&T summit, co-sponsored by 14

government agencies, including the Ministry of Science and Technology and the Ministry of

Health, was held on April 10, 2008 at the Great Hall of the People. LIU Yandong, a Chinese

State Councilor, made an important speech at the opening ceremony. WAN Gang, Science

and Technology Minister, and CHEN Zhu, Health Minister, also spoke at the meeting. Heads

of 14 sponsoring government agencies, and some 300 participants from health, S&T, and

industrial communities, and from universities, were present at the event.

Under a theme of "leading a scientific life, and being both healthy and happy", the national

drive will work on a range of missions, including placing more weight of health activities on

grassroots people, improving the innovation capacity of health activities, enhancing

diffusion and application of proven findings, and building China into a large health power.

Under the guiding principle of focusing on people, proprietary and integrated innovations,

and enhanced diffusion, some ten S&T projects will be launched to work on diseases

prevention and control, food and drug safety, new drugs, and localization of medical

instruments, during the 11th Five-year period (2006-2010). After the opening ceremony,

a health forum was held to discuss cancer prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and associated

drug development.
