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.

2016 CHPAMS Rising Scholar Best Paper Award

It is our pleasure to announce that the winner of 2016 CHPAMS Rising Scholar Best Paper is granted to "The effect of air pollution on mortality in China: Evidence from the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games", authored by Drs. Guojun He, Maoyong Fan, and Maigeng Zhou.

CHPAMS established the Rising Scholar Best Paper Award in November 2016 to recognize outstanding peer review publications authored by CHPAMS members who are in their early career stage (either current students or within five years since receiving their last academic degrees). The application for the 2016 Award was open from November 2016 to January 2017. We received eight highly qualified applications, published by CHPAMS members in China, Hong Kong, The Netherland, and U.S.  A six-member Award Committee (see list below) completed a thorough review of all applications and selected the winner for the first CHPAMS Best Paper Award.

The winning paper, "The effect of air pollution on mortality in China: Evidence from the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games", estimates the causal effect of air pollution on mortality in China in a quasi-experimental design. The paper exploits exogenous variations in air quality during the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games, and, compares the air pollution levels and health outcomes between cities that were regulated with cities that were not regulated before, during and after the Olympic Games. The paper reports that a 10% decrease in PM10 concentrations reduces the monthly standardized all-cause mortality rate by 8%. The age groups for which the air pollution effects are greatest are children under 10 years old and the elderly. The estimates generated from this quasi-experiment are substantially larger than the associational estimates, suggesting that previous studies may under-estimate the health impacts of air pollution. The findings also imply that tighter environmental regulations can lead to significant health improvement in China. The paper was published on the September 2016 issue of Journal of Environmental Economics and Management, a leading journal in environmental economics.  

The winning paper’s lead author, Dr. Guojun He, is an economist working on environmental, health and development issues. He is an assistant professor appointed jointly at Division of Social Science, Division of Environment and Department of Economics at The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST). Before joining HKUST, he was a research fellow at Harvard School of Public Health and obtained his Ph.D. degree from University of California, Berkeley. His current research focuses on understanding the complex relationship between economic development, environment, and human health from an interdisciplinary perspective.

Congratulations to Drs. Guojun He, Maoyong Fan, and Maigeng Zhou!

Lead Author, Dr. Guojun HE

2016 Board of Directors Nomination is Open

The term of the current board of directors will expire on June 30, 2016. Therefore, we will start the nomination and election process based on the bylaws. Please see the enclosed nomination forms and instructions. Note that only the members who registered on chpams.org can be nominated, endorse and vote for the candidates. Definitely you are one of them!

I'm so honored and humble to serve this wonderful organization in the last two years. It is the best non-profit organization I've ever volunteered on and the experience is terrific! My board of directors contributed significant efforts to make critical decisions that move the organization forward; so many volunteers work behind the scenes to contribute everything they can contribute to this organization. Making so many new friends and learning so much from them!

I've already informed the board that I will step down as the President after June 30. I believe newly elected leadership can develop more potentials from this great organization. I really appreciate all your support in the past two years and hope you can support the new leadership as you support me.

We encourage more members with the leadership skills and potentials to step up and serve on the board. One of the important missions for CHPAMS is to provide leadership training to our members so they can develop well in their own careers. The board has appointed me, Adam Chen, and Roman Xu, as the nomination committee. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact any of us.

Chinese New Year is just around the corner and best wishes for you and your family to have a wonderful Year of Monkey!
