BEIJING, July 15 (Xinhua) -- The State Council, China's cabinet, has issued new guideline to implement the country's Healthy China initiative and promote people's health.

With a focus on disease prevention and health promotion, the guideline proposed 15 special campaigns to "intervene in health influencing factors, protect full-life-cycle health and prevent and control major diseases."

An action plan for 2019-2030 has also been rolled out, specifying objectives and tasks of each campaign, as well as responsibilities of different actors in the campaign.

In 2016, the Communist Party of China Central Committee and the State Council released the "Healthy China 2030" blueprint, which covered such as public health services, environment management, the medical industry and food and drug safety.
