The department will focus on the application of science and technology to health and family planning development this year, especially health system reforms and the major needs of the medical care industry, using innovation for the reforms, major scientific programs, comprehensive resident doctor training, cultivating talent in communities, and improving safety. It will increase capacity through a different work style and stronger guidance for health and family planning development In the following ways:

I. Scientific and technological system reform in health and family planning

The 2016-2020 plan on health and family planning science education will be completed following national requirements and health and family planning requirements over the next five years. The focus will be on needs, problems and development, and implementation for major medicine developments, HIV/AIDS, viral hepatitis and other major infectious diseases, health and family planning science and technology, and personnel training. The department will push health and family planning science and technology reforms in line with the central government’s requirements, change the national medicine and health science and technology project management, and work to become more professional. There will be pilot management reforms in science and technology and a search for new organization and management models and methods for science projects, greater medical science project efficiency, and greater integration of medical science and health and family planning work.

II. Science and technology program organization and implementation

This follows the 2011-2015 plan and will involve major products, critical needs and problems, with the focus on clinical medicine for major diseases, key technology for medicine industrialization, prevention and control technology systems for emerging and major infectious diseases and support for promising special programs. Institutional development and supervision will be improved through work with various departments, and by drafting of guidelines for medical innovations and applications. Management reform requirements will be met, there will be greater coordinated management between departments and regions, clearer supervisor responsibilities, resource integration, and a pooling of R&D efforts for an emergency technology site, and bio-safety and strategic drugs. There will be annual inspections, periodic task evaluations, and profit-oriented achievement evaluations, with a more dynamic subject adjustment method and meetings on special program organization. There will be a greater effort to introduce talented personnel through the Global Expert Recruitment Program and innovations in talent, team and facilities selections. There will be a focus on new vaccines and antibodies, and prevention and control of new and emergent infectious diseases. There will be a search for international cooperation in new science and technology, stronger internal coordination, greater application of discoveries, more information transparency, public updates on project development, exchanges, and an annual report on major science and technology program development, while working with various departments for the emerging bio-medical industry.

III. Medical research system and new technology standards

There will be a medical research network and site, with the national medical center, national regional medical center, national center for clinical medicine research, and medical industry resources, for studies of China’s medical research operations, studies of a new medical research model, and the removal of problems in medical scientific research. There needs to be coordination in major disease prevention and treatment and research nationwide, clinical research data sharing, greater medical research integrity, and greater research efficiency. Stem cell clinical research management needs standardization, under the Stem Cell Clinical Research Management Methods, and we need better training and publicity for provincial departments and stem cell clinical research institutes. There will be a stem cell clinical research expert committee doing surveys and evaluations of the records of institutes and project sites, making full use of expert support, information disclosure, greater supervision and healthier development in stem cell research. There will be stronger medical and family planning technology assessments and use, with better guidance for assessments and promotion, with 5-10 health technology assessment projects for 2015. Assessments will be examined, health technology applied more, and better medical ethics, scientific research integrity and intellectual property supervision. There will be a Review Methods for Human-related Biomedical Research Ethics, greater training, publicity, and intellectual property management in medicine, health and family planning, and greater medical research registration and records at pilot hospitals.
