The Chinese and British governments are cooperating on a program to improve global health policy for developing countries, with the launch in Beijing on Jan 16 of a new UK-China partnership.

The Global Health Support Program will run until September 2017, with a UK investment of 12 million pounds ($19.20 million) to provide a technical and implementation support, and a Chinese contribution of health expertise and facilities.

The Ministry of Health's Center for Project Supervision and Management will provide program management.

The program will help the UK 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.

The program will also help improve China's capacity to contribute to global health.
