Elsevier And PMPH To Co-Publish China's Former Minister Of Health Chen Zhu's Book On Health Reforms In China

BEIJING, June 9, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

English translation of book, "Healthy China 2020 Strategic Research Report", will make documentation of China's medical and healthcare reforms widely available and accessible for   reference around the world  

Elsevier, the world-leading publisher of scientific, technical and medical information products and services, and People's Medical Publishing House (PMPH), China, announced today their agreement to jointly-publish the English edition of Healthy China 2020 Strategic Research Report by China's former Minister of Health, Chen Zhu, who served as editor-in-chief on the book.

Published by PMPH in Chinese in August 2012, Healthy China 2020 Strategic Research Report details China's health reforms over the last 60 years. It includes candid discussions on the major health issues and challenges faced by the country as well as a comprehensive look at the strategic priorities, development goals and practical policy recommendations to take China's healthcare system forward into the future.

"With the advancement of healthcare reforms in China, we have to proactively address increasingly complex issues and concerns", said Dr. Chen, now Vice-Chairman of the National People's Congress, China. "That will require better coordination amongst the relevant governmental departments to shift the focus from disease diagnosis and treatment to prevention and control, establishing robust public funding mechanisms, reducing individual contribution to health care expenses as well as integrating the health care systems from both urban and rural regions."

"We are glad for this opportunity to co-publish Dr. Chen's book in English with Elsevier and introduce it to the rest of world," said Mr. Chen Xianyi, President of PMPH. "Elsevier has an outstanding reputation as a global publisher and information provider, and we believe that working with Elsevier will help distribute the information contained in this book to places where it's needed."
