ACCESS Health International is initiating activities in China. Our goal is to assist with efforts to achieve universal access to high quality, affordable healthcare.

We plan to develop long term relationships with healthcare and civil affairs policy leaders. We will assist policymakers in the design and implementation of healthcare and social systems that deliver high quality services through enhanced primary care and integration of care. Our main focus is on the needs of the elderly. We will also work with academic partners and the private sector to study the healthcare system and social aged care in China. We will initiate a program to inspire and support entrepreneurs interested in aging. We believe there are opportunities to make better use of available resources in the public and private sectors. We will provide support to provinces to engage the private sector in improving the care of the elderly. We will also support the private sector as it identifies opportunities to complement government efforts for the elderly.

The initial goal of ACCESS Health China is to assure that the elderly have access to high quality affordable care at home and in communities. ACCESS Health China also encourages entrepreneurs to create businesses that serve the needs of the elderly. An aging population is one of the most challenging issues faced by healthcare systems today, including China. Older patients have high rates of one or more chronic disease. The challenge is to provide high quality care and control cost. ACCESS Health brings together experts and organizations facing similar healthcare challenges to share experiences in a structured process known as joint learning. Through this process, experts and organizations share knowledge of what works. ACCESS Health intends to establish a Joint Learning Program to address the problems of elder care and primary care within both urban and rural China.
