China sees marked improvement in disability-prevention indicators_china.org.cn


During the 13th Five-Year Plan period (2016-2020), China had made marked improvements in multiple indicators for disability prevention and rehabilitation, according to a press conference Tuesday.


The vaccination rate for eligible children under China's national immunization plan was kept above 90 percent during the period in order to prevent disease-induced disabilities, while major endemic diseases were almost fully eradicated at the county level, the China Disabled Persons' Federation, the National Health Commission and the Ministry of Emergency Management said in a joint press conference.


The rates of pre-pregnancy check-ups and prenatal screenings were increased to 96.4 percent and 81.1 percent, respectively, helping to reduce disabilities caused by birth defects and developmental disorders, the conference said.
