China in the Sustainable Development Agenda: Contributions to health and education

Published: 2 Mar 2020

China is scaling up its investments in health and
education, making significant contributions to
the UN 2030 Agenda and related Sustainable
Development Goals. Domestically, China is working
to modernize its entire health care system, improve
mandatory and additional education, and foster
elite academic institutions. Internationally, China
is increasing both its bilateral and multilateral
support. Looking beyond 2020, the coronavirus
crisis is not likely to change this overall trajectory,
but China may increase its investment in both
domestic and international health and disease
prevention systems.
