China, U.K. form global health partnership

"The Chinese and British governments are cooperating on a program to improve global health policy for developing countries, with the launch in Beijing on January 16 of a new U.K.-China partnership," China Daily reports. "The program will help the U.K. Department for International Development and low-income countries to learn from China's success in reducing infant, child and maternal mortality rates, and its disease prevention and control; and China's health development and health sector reforms" (Zhihua, 1/17). "The program will run until September 2017, with a U.K. investment of £12 million [$19.2 million] to provide a technical contribution and implementation support, and a Chinese contribution of health expertise and facilities," according to a press release from the British Embassy in Beijing. "The Ministry of Health's Centre for Project Supervision and Management will provide program management," the press release adds (1/16).
