Since its inauguration in 2011 at Harvard University, the U.S.-China Health Summit has been dedicated to advancing global health by promoting exchange of knowledge, ideas and experiences among the current and future health sector leaders from China, the U.S. and other countries. Our mission is carried out through high-level strategic dialogues, leadership development programs and applied research.
With academic leadership provided by Peking Union Medical College, Harvard, Tsinghua University etc, the annual Summit is also supported by the China National Health and Family Planning Commission and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services as an important part of the U.S.-China Economic and Strategic Dialogue and the People-To- People Exchange Program. Despite of political differences, both the U.S. and China care deeply about betterment of health and healthcare for all its peoples, and both countries have been working hard to make their health systems more effective, equitable and efficient.
Therefore, discussions among leaders from academia, public and private sectors about the major issues of common interests and exchange of experiences in dealing with these issues can help inform the process of developing our nations’ policies and strategies. The Summit also provides an unique networking opportunity for “Meeting of Great Minds” and identifying future “Win-Win” collaborative projects.
