Description/achievement of initiative

China will continue to increase its domestic investment in women and children's health, through new policies and measures, and additional financing. New reforms now being implemented will provide basic health care insurance for all. There are also new measures which especially benefit rural women, including free breast and cervical cancer screening, hospital birth-delivery subsidies, and free folic acid supplements. Additional measures include free hepatitis B vaccination for all children under 15 years old, a national immunization program covering all children, and free services to prevent mother-to-child transmission of the HIV virus for all pregnant women. The government will also reimburse 90% of medical expenses for rural children who have congenital heart disease or leukaemia.
