Tibet has also stressed the improvement of people's health over the past decade. The region's average life expectancy now exceeds 72. It has been working on providing better medical services since the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China in November 2012.

"Such dramatic changes and progress can be understood by examining the region's history. Before its peaceful liberation in 1951, the region only had three Tibetan medicinal institutes and a few private clinics, with fewer than 100 medical technicians," Yan said. "Today, the region has established a complete medical service network to deal with maternal and child health, disease prevention and Tibetan medicine, with health centers established in all its townships and clinics opened in all its villages."
