[Correspondence] China, Africa, and US academia join hands to advance global health

In 2016, Chinese President Xi Jinping announced the Healthy China 2030 plan—an ambitious agenda to promote health across China and to strengthen South–South cooperation, including the China–Africa Public Health cooperation plan.1 In 2005, African heads of state championed the Agenda Africa 2063, which had a similar emphasis on population health.2 Ongoing health reforms across both Africa and China offer immense potential for mutual learning.3,4 China’s success in the provision of preventive and primary care has the potential to inform health care in Africa, which faces similar challenges today as China did more than three decades ago; however, Chinese academic health experts have been unable to translate Chinese experiences to the African context, and suggest academic institutions in both countries need more capacity building to foster sustainable changes to the local health systems.
