The 3rd China-ASEAN Forum on Health Cooperation towards a Health Silk Road is being held both online and offline in Nanning, Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region from Nov 24 to 25.

The forum is being jointly held by the National Health Commission, the National Administration of Traditional Chinese Medicine, and the People's Government of Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region.

Three proposals have been put forward during the forum, namely carrying out active matchmaking in health development strategies for regional health development, enhancing joint prevention and control of infectious diseases to maintain regional health security, as well as deepening cooperation in talent cultivation and technique exchanges to push forward health innovation.  

A total of six sub-forums are being held during the event, of which two were held for the first time, namely ones on emergency health cooperation, as well as cooperation on food safety and nutritional health.

First held in 2016, the forum has helped widen health cooperation between China and ASEAN, achieving fruitful results in several projects spanning the prevention and control of infectious diseases, traditional Chinese medicine, as well as hospital management.


第三届中国-东盟卫生合作论坛在南宁召开

11月24日,“健康丝绸之路”建设暨第三届中国-东盟卫生合作论坛在广西南宁召开。本届论坛由国家卫生健康委、国家中医药管理局和广西壮族自治区人民政府共同主办,主题为“团结合作,共建中国-东盟卫生健康共同体”。

受新冠肺炎疫情影响,本届论坛首次采取了“线上+线下”相结合的形式举办。会上指出,中国与东盟国家山水相连,中国-东盟关系成熟稳定,卫生健康合作已成为中国-东盟合作中重要合作领域,尤其是2016年举办并搭建起中国-东盟卫生合作论坛以来,双方合作领域进一步拓宽,合作层次进一步拓展,合作内涵进一步丰富,在传染病防控、传统医学、卫生人力资源、医院管理等多个领域开展了多个务实合作项目,取得丰硕成果。

新冠肺炎疫情再次表明,中国与东盟是休戚与共的卫生健康命运共同体。疫情发生后,中国与东盟率先开展区域抗疫合作,在双方共同努力下,经贸合作克服疫情影响,实现稳定增长,这正是双方卫生合作渠道畅通、合作基础稳固的有力印证。

会上就中国-东盟卫生合作提出三点倡议,一是积极对接卫生发展战略,促进地区卫生发展。二是加强传染病联防联控,更好维护地区卫生安全。三是深化人才培养和技术合作,推动地区卫生创新。

据悉,在上届论坛的基础上,本届论坛新增了“卫生应急合作”“食品安全与营养健康合作”2个分论坛。它们将与另外4个分论坛一起,围绕本届主题,在疫情防控、口腔医学、传统医药、医院管理、卫生应急、食品安全与营养健康等领域与东盟各国嘉宾和学者展开交流研讨,同期还举办中国-东盟卫生合作论坛成果展。论坛发布了《第三届中国-东盟卫生合作论坛倡议》,签署中国印尼卫生合作执行计划等众多务实合作成果。
