The education department, for example, is responsible for health education on cancer prevention for primary and secondary school students.The environmental protection department is expected to deal with major environmental pollution threats.The plan also encourages the creation of new anti-tumor medications to help reduce the economic burden for cancer patients, and an expansion of basic medical insurance coverage for major diseases such as cancer.The plans goals are both practical and achievable, Chen said.Chinas current registration coverage has reached 25 to 26 percent, so an increase to 30 percent is doable, Chen said.”But still it has a long way to go, as some countries have achieved 100 percent registration. The higher the rate is, the more data and information we gain for research,” he said.Chinas current cancer spectrum not only has the character of developing countries, but also that of developed countries, Chen said.Liver, gastric, esophageal and cervical cancer are the most common cancers among people in the developing world, while lung, breast, and colorectal cancer are more likely to affect residents of developed countries.”Before, we could focus on the prevention and treatment of cancers that those in developing countries mainly suffered, but now we have to put our energy and investment into the treatment of more kinds of cancers,” he said.Wang Xiaodong contributed to the story.hena@chinadaily.com.cn8.03KRelated StoriesInterpretation of China’s cancer prevention and treatment three-year action plan (2015-2017)Dogs Being Trained to Detect CancerEducational program rolled out for breast cancer patientsCancer screening for healthy people could be unnecessaryHepatitis cases causing liver cancerPhotoNight views of Harbin through the lensTibetans take train home after pilgrimage or travellingWorlds largest shaftless Ferris wheel built in ChinaAncient cities to be connected by Xian-Chengdu high-speed railwaySnow turns Harbin into winter wonderlandReed Catkin Festival held in WuhanSocietyPoliticsHot TopicsScience/TechBusinessCover StoryFTZ simplifies process to launch businessesJapan can offer experience, expat saysApplication for work streamlinedAwareness of law aids resolutionAir Force units explore new airspaceLow wages and lack of respect responsible for kindergarten abuse, experts sayLiu heralds UK partnership in education and researchAgency ensuring natural gas supplyUN envoys trip to DPRK praised by BeijingChina moves to secure natural gas supply amid rising winter demandXi asks China, Canada to work for substantial tiesCooperation necessary for success, leaders sayLiving in space: How astronauts train, eat and workTeachers excused for lunchtime drinksWaiting for Shenzhou XICancer agent found in 44 cities drinking waterAt Ikea eatery, its no pay, no stayChina lose 2-0 to Uzbekistan in World Cup qualifier, coach Gao resignsC919 gains another 55 orders, lifting total orders to 785Services offset dip in manufacturingFintech to energize real economy, cut risksChinas Long March rockets complete 60 commercial launchesEngineers achieve breakthroughChina-made components add securityOnline shopping rings up customer complaintsImport expo to focus on advanced techSME mobile market platform receives first clientsChina top importer of US soybeansAir China opens direct route from Beijing to BarcelonaInsurance-based trust launchedDandelion helping to sow the seeds of stability for membersCover storyVisa change may boost tourism to USThe wrong side of the roadBuilding ban begins to biteVillagers call on Japan to atone for massacreMost ViewedTodays Top NewsUniversal signs deal to open biggest theme park in BeijingPublic to have more say on pollutionReport: Most netizens privacy compromisedCompany had 24 naked officials, authorities sayRising cancer rate drives prevention plan in ChinaTianjin starts appraising apartments damaged by blastsTwo SOE executives expelled from PartyMobile apps assist teachers and studentsChina and Arab states strengthen medical exchangesDead firefighters families still in disbelief about blastsIn todays trending, the head of a Michelangelo masterpiece is rendered in toothpicks, a college leader is roundly criticized when a video of him with freshmen looks too much like a military review, a giant swordfish caught off Qingdao tips the scales at 310 kg and a delusional man who thinks he’s invisible is accused of robbing a hospital.HighlightsUniversal signs deal to open biggest theme park in BeijingIn pictures: School life from the lens of sports teacherChina, Russia to co-develop heavy-lift helicopter in 2016Court clears names of wrongly convicted in newspaperHot TopicsGround level Rule of law Panda China youths Anti-terror drive Family planning Smog Fox Hunt Beijing integrates with Tianjin, Hebei China cracks down on graftSpecialChina Legal Information CenterGlimpses of Tibet: Plateaus, people and faith…| About China Daily | Advertise on Site | Contact Us | Job Offer | Expat Employment |Copyright 1995 -var oTime = new Date();
