On April 7, the launching ceremony of China Soong Ching Ling Foundation’s Special Fund for Children’s Health and Care was held in the former residence of Soong Ching Ling in Beijing.
Jing Dunquan, member of the Party leadership group of CSCLF and vice chairman of the CSCLF, pointed out in his speech that the CPC Central Committee with Comrade Xi Jinping at the core attaches great importance to the health of young people and children. The Special Fund is poised to improve the health service system for young people, promote the development of children’s medical and health care, and make greater contributions to the health of young people in the new era.
Zhang Wenkang, honorary president of the China Maternal and Child Health Association and vice chairman of the fifth council of the CSCLF, indicated that in the outline of the “Healthy China 2030 Plan,” a series of health improvement strategies have been put forward for young people. The newly launched Special Fund will surely promote this undertaking to a much higher level.
After announcing the Special Fund, guests awarded the “Child Health and Love Ambassador” and “Child Health Guardian” certificates to experts in this area. More than 40 well-known experts and scholars in the field of pediatrics attended the ceremony.
