1.      Announcing CHPAMS 2nd Biennial Conference May 11 – 13, 2018

This is the 2nd biennial meeting of China Health Policy and Management Society (CHPAMS) and its official journal China Health Review. The meeting’s theme is Advances in Health Policy and Healthcare: The Road Ahead, with a special focus on Healthy China 2030 national blueprint. Since October 2016, Healthy China 2030 (HC 2030), a national program of action to promote the health of 1.3 billion Chinese population, has been central to the Chinese Government’s agenda for health and development, and has the potential to benefit the rest of the world. This conference aims to bridge our minds and draw upon global wisdom in the advances of health policy and health care in China. Participants will include national health officials from China, U.S. public health NGO representatives, world-class scholars from the U.S., China, and other regions in the world, entrepreneurs in the health sector, and so on. Through this platform, participants will have the opportunity to establish professional networks with leaders in the field and enhance their professional career development. The Board of Directors of CHPAMS and Editorial Board of CHR will host business meetings and communicate with engaged members to further promote the organization and the journal to a new stage. Detailed information about meeting registration, submission deadlines can be found here.
