The Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention held an online meeting for an adolescent health and development project on Jan 26. The project was jointly launched by the National Health Commission of the People's Republic of China (formerly the National Health and Family Planning Commission) and the United Nations International Children's Emergency Fund (UNICEF).

Zhang Hua, president of Chongqing Health Center for Women and Children (CQHCWC), and relevant staff members from the Chongqing Municipal Health Commission partook in the online conference, together with more than 700 participants from 11 provincial-level regions nationwide.

The meeting served as an opportunity to review the regional implementation of the project and exchange relevant cases.

Zhang Haiyan, director of CQHCWC's Women's Health Care Department, gave a summary of Chongqing's adolescent health and development plan.

She reported on six aspects of the project: the background, effectiveness, difficulties, challenges, model application and promotion of adolescent health care in Chongqing's Beibei district and Zhongxian county. Her speech demonstrated the achievements of Chongqing's adolescent health care sector.

During the case exchange part of the meeting, Chongqing reported seven typical cases, of which three were selected as "excellent" ones.

Other representatives from the Women's Health Care Department discussed difficult experiences and shared their thoughts on adolescent health care work.

During the meeting, experts offered suggestions on Chongqing's adolescent health and development project, laying a solid foundation for the long-term development of the city's youth health care system.

CQHCWC will continue to promote the healthy development of the city’s adolescents.
