This workshop will focus on the large and growing burden of chronic non-communicable disease (NCD) in China and the importance of strengthening primary healthcare in managing patients with chronic disease. With experts from China’s national and local Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as well as prominent academic researchers, we will discuss China’s NCD burden and the experiences of localities in implementing China’s national program on NCD control, as well as other related health economic research. Thanks to a generous gift from ACON Biotech, Stanford’s Asia Health Policy Program is hosting this workshop as part of a series of events in Beijing and at Stanford on innovations in primary care.
