BEIJING -- Chinese health authorities have recently released a work plan on the prevention and treatment of cardio-cerebrovascular diseases.

The work plan sets the course for relevant work from 2023 to 2030, said China's National Health Commission on Wednesday.

The plan noted that by 2030, a nationwide comprehensive prevention and early-treatment system for such diseases will be established. Medical institutions at all levels will have a greater capacity to combat such diseases, and breakthroughs will be achieved in relevant technological development.

To achieve the goals, the plan proposed thorough monitoring of cardio-cerebrovascular disease risks among people aged 35 and above. It also necessitated boosting primary-level medical institutions' capacity to monitor the levels of blood pressure, blood sugar, and blood fat.
