The National Committee is pleased to announce that it is launching a new Track II dialogue between the United States and China to discuss issues surrounding healthcare faced by both nations.
Under the overall theme of “Providing Effective Healthcare,” the dialogue will examine the effectiveness of the healthcare systems in China and the United States and recommend ways to better measure and manage the delivery and efficiency of healthcare in the two countries.
Dr. Olivier Brandicourt, CEO of the global healthcare provider Sanofi and a director of the National Committee, has encouraged and supported the Committee to undertake this project, which is one of the new initiatives celebrating the Committee’s 50th Anniversary.
“The U.S.-China Track II Dialogue on Healthcare will provide a forum where experts from academia and the private sectors in both countries can come together and address the health needs of their respective populations,” said Dr. Brandicourt. “When both countries face similar issues, such as the growing cost of chronic disease, it is the perfect opportunity to bring together different perspectives and experiences to develop new ideas for improving the healthcare systems in both countries.”
The National School of Development (NSD) at Peking University is co-organizing the dialogue with the Committee. The dialogue will bring together twelve experts from each country. Dr. Mark McClellan, former FDA commissioner and administrator of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, will lead the American team. Heading up the NSD’s efforts is Dr. Gordon Liu, director of the University’s China Center for Health Economic Research.
As with the Committee’s other Track II dialogues, at the end of each session, the participants to the U.S.-China Track II Dialogue on Healthcare will produce a consensus agreement which will be shared with both governments and with the general public.
