[Editorial] China: health takes priority

In 2013, the Lancet issue on China called for three steps to tackle China’s health challenges: understand the underlying causes for the rapid health transitions; support innovative, robust, and transparent research; and establish and implement sound health policies. This month, at China’s highest-profile national health conference in 20 years, President Xi Jinping has placed health at the heart of all policy making and called for full protection of every citizen’s health by stating: “an all-around moderately prosperous society cannot be achieved without the people’s all-round health”.
