KUNMING, Dec. 3, 2018 -- China's top legislator Li Zhanshu has underlined the need to expedite legislation on health care.
Li, chairman of the National People's Congress (NPC) Standing Committee, made the remarks during a four-day research tour in southwestern province of Yunnan that ended Saturday.
"It is imperative to safeguard people's rights and interests and improve people's wellbeing with a well-conceived rule of law," Li said during the research on how to better make a law on basic medical care and health promotion. The draft of the law has been deliberated twice by the NPC and made public for comments.
Li spoke with 10 deputies to people's congresses at various levels on their opinions about the law draft. Their discussions focused on ensuring a balanced, rational and scientific allocation and distribution of medical resources.
"Medical resources of all levels and all types should be used and shared, serving as a legal guarantee for maintaining people's lifecycle health," Li said.
Li also visited community healthcare centers, pharmaceutical company, and rural clinics.
