Nation surpasses 5-year targets to reduce occurrence of range of disabilities

China Daily Editor:Li Yan


China has hit a host of targets set in 2016 to reduce the occurrence of disabilities, an official said on Tuesday.


The achievements are spread across a wide range of areas, including coverage of prenatal checkups, treatment of chronic diseases, and the number of car accidents and work injuries, said Hu Xiangyang, who oversees rehabilitation affairs at the China Disabled Persons' Federation.


He said the rate of pre-pregnancy checks now stands at 96.4 percent and prenatal checkups are at 81.1 percent, which helps detect hereditary, infectious and severe mental diseases.


The pre-pregnancy checkup, which is free of charge, was made a basic public service in 2019.

"The figures show that measures aimed at avoiding birth defects have been better implemented," Hu told a news conference in Beijing.
