What leading causes of premature death and disability in China is the Center addressing?

The Global Burden of Disease Report 2010 highlighted the top three leading causes of premature death in China are stroke, ischemic heart disease, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Other leading causes of disease burden that the CCmHI will target include diabetes, kidney disease and cancer. Many of the risk factors for these conditions are shared and so rather than a disease-specific approach, the CCmHI will take an integrated health systems approach to addressing these diseases.
