ecent annual gathering of the World Health Assembly in Geneva expressed worry and optimi
sm in almost equal measure. Delegates at the assembly－the decision-making body of the World He上海千花坊
上海千花坊女神会所alth Organization－likened the scope of the world’s health crisis to that of the threat posed by climate change. They also ag
reed, however, that digital technology and data will play a crucial role in accelerating efforts to achieve health for all.上海千花坊
In many respects, the world’s health has improved markedly in recent decades: average global life expectancy has incr
eased by more than five years, while childhood mortality has declined by more than 50 percent since 1990. Yet half the wo上海千花坊
rld’s population still lacks full access to basic health services, and health-related expenses drive roughly 100 m
上海千花坊女神会所illion people into poverty every year. The problem is particularly severe in low-and middle-income countries, where the fin
ancial burden of the four most frequent non-communicable diseases alone (cardiovascular disease, cancer, dia
betes and chronic respiratory diseases) is expected to surpass $7 trillion from 2011 to 2025, according to WHO.上海千花坊
At the same time, the world is just beginning to recognize the potential of digitally enhanced data to improve health. With increased use of digital tech
上海千花坊nology, we can help people stay healthy, rather than waiting for them to get sick. We can make reactive healthcare s
ystems proactive and－thanks to artificial intelligence (AI)－even predictive.
Most cost-effective way to meet health-related SDGs上海千花坊女神会所
In our view, digital health is the most efficient, cost-effective way for the world to meet the United Nations Sustainable Develo
上海千花坊pment Goals’ health-related targets－particularly universal health coverage, whereby everyone can access the q
uality care they need without incurring financial hardship. This is also a high priority for WHO, which earlier this
year created a Department of Digital Health and published its first set of guidelines on the subject.上海千花坊
With several major global strategy-setting meetings ahead, including the UN High-Level Meeting on Universal Health Co
上海千花坊女神会所verage in New York in September, the world must act now to realize the promise of digital health. We see three dist
inct opportunities for cross-sectoral partnerships: in prediction, prevention and healthcare delivery.
Understanding－and, where possible, predicting－the health profile of populations is integral to providing better上海千花坊女神会所
care. Digitalized data collection, including through the use of AI and machine learning, can help healthcare sys
tems to detect risk factors in advance and respond quickly to prevent disease. Real-time data can inform planning and re
source-allocation decisions, reduce costs, and improve the overall quality of care. Better
processes for ensuring data security and privacy are also essential to implement predictive systems at scale.

The China-skeptics in the United States are at it again. This time they are using the pretext of huma
n rights violation to criticize China’s policy of combating terrorism and separatism in the Xinjiang Uygu上海419论坛
r autonomous region and improving the livelihoods of the people there. But by so doing, they have exposed their ulterior motives,
上海419论坛女神会所not least because they have no evidence to prove their allegations, and thus become the target of both ridicule and anger.
This group of people has always claimed it wants to “help” China furth
er the human rights cause while, ironically, not paying any attention to the US’ horrible hu上海419论坛
man rights record. Which makes people wonder whether the American people
上海419论坛女神会所elected those “patriots” to “make America great again”, or just to poke their nose into other countries’ internal affairs.
As we Chinese say, seeing is believing and ignorance spreads rumor. The US is thousands of kilometers away from Xinji

上海419论坛女神会所The authors who have penned a book on the region – Xinjiang: China’s Muslim Borderland – did visi

Some say this is a result of differences in cultures and values. Yet since the white color is a symbol of purity in one culture and of
supremacism in another, bullying others to attribute just one meaning to a color is nothing but hegemony.上海419论坛
There is little doubt that some politicians in the US and other Western countries have an ulterior motive
behind their seeming concern for Xinjiang residents. And not surprisingly, the motive is directly li
nked with the US’ politics, ideology and global strategy. Showing a sudden interest in Xinjiang after the end of th
e Cold War, the US devised a so-called Xinjiang policy to boost its Central Asia strategy and new global strategy, one
of whose major objectives is to weaken, contain and attempt to disintegrate China.

The Nanning municipal government and the financial supervision admini上海419
stration of Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region officially issued the Construction Plan of the
上海419品茶微信Financial Opening-up Gateway Nanning Core Area for ASEAN (2019-2023) on July 7.
The plan shows that Guangxi will strive to establish a regional leading financial industrial structure a
nd a distinctive financial industry functional system by 2023, as well as complete the上海419
basic construction of Nanning Core Area, which will serve as the financial opening-up gateway for ASEAN.
上海419品茶微信The plan is divided into six parts, with the scope covering 2.6 square kilometers of Nanning Wuxiang New District and the sur
rounding areas. The key issues are divided into 121 items in 21 sectors. It requires the integration of financial ins
titutions’ business formats and functional types, as well as the construction of financial headquarters, fin上海419
ancial information service areas, financial operation service areas, and science and technology financial industry zones.
The plan focuses on Nanning Core Area, establishing an insurance innovation comprehensive experim
上海419品茶微信ental pilot zone, as well as a green finance reform and innovation demonstration zone. It will bu
ild a regional RMB offshore financial center, regional currency transaction clearing center, as well as a cross-border inv

rvice base, and financial exchange training base. It will form a China-ASEAN commodity spot trading market, gold ind
ustry trading market, regional equity investment market, regional property rights trading market, and capital cu
上海419品茶微信ltivation service market. It will improve the area’s building supply, inte
rmediary service, credit reporting service, living service, talent support, and business environment.
The planning period is 2019-2023 and is clearly implemented in three phases: the first phase will be fully launched in 2019; the s上海419
econd phase will be effective by early 2020; and the third phase will be completed by 2023.上海419品茶微信
In the future, Nanning will fully build Nanning Core Area, striving to take the lead in achievi

Conservation prioritized to economic development
A major exhibition examining the pivotal role played by the Tibetan Tubo regime in the S上海419论坛
ilk Road era is breaking new ground, Wang Kaihao reports in Dunhuang.
上海419论坛女神会所When you mention the ancient Silk Road to most people, they usually think of the Eurasian trade routes spreading from Chang’an, today’
s Xi’an and the capital of Shaanxi province, toward Central Asia out through the deserts of Northwest China.
Dunhuang, Gansu province, served as a pivotal crossroads on this networ上海419论坛女神会所
k of routes for over a millennium. It’s also an ideal place to gain an insight into the pros
perity that those trade routes brought when you visit the nearby Mogao Grottoes. This complex of hundreds of cav上海419论坛
es features a host of exquisite statues and murals in a mix of artistic styles from a diverse range of civilizations.
A major new exhibition of cultural relics held in Dunhuang will remind visitors that the Silk Road extended t上海419论坛女神会所
o a much wider area than first believed, covering the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau and all the way up to the Himalayas.
This is the story being told through the 120 or so artifacts on loan from 30 instituti上海419论坛
ons and collectors worldwide at Cultural Exchange Along the Silk Road: Masterpieces of the Tubo Period (7th-9th C
entury), a show currently being held at the Dunhuang Caves exhibition hall at the foot of the Mogao Grottoes.上海419论坛女神会所
“Yushu is located at the source of China’s three great rivers. Both the provincial governmen
t and the prefecture government understand (our ecological responsibility) and emphasize pr
otection. We all have this consensus,” said Tobgyal, director of Yushu’s ecological environment bureau.
The area has prioritized environmental conservation before economic deve
lopment, also part of the local government’s commitment to ensure water qu
ality in the upstream region of China’s three major rivers, which influences 20 provincial areas across China.
To better preserve the grasslands and reduce environmental degradation caused by grazing
, local herdsmen have returned their lands to nature and resettled in county urban areas. 上海419
In cooperation with China Pacific Insurance Co, the management committee guarantees the conservators with compens
上海419品茶微信ation of up to 300,000 yuan ($43,600), covering injuries and accidents,” said Mou Yonghong, an o
fficial from Sanjiangyuan National Park’s Lancang River Management Committee.
A mechanism for livestock compensation has also been established: each lost cow is compensated with 500 to 1,500 yuan ($70-200), depending on age. 上海419品茶微信
To encourage more residents to take part in environmental protection, the lo
cal government has combined this goal with poverty alleviation. They offer positions of “e
上海419cological conservators” for every registered family, paying each family a monthly subsidy of 1,800 yuan ($260). The co
nservators are responsible for patrolling the lands, collecting and disposing of garbage and monitoring wildlife.
With more people working as conservators, Tsewang Dorje, deputy head of the 上海419品茶微信
ecological management station of Namsei village, noted the overall environmental awareness of l
ocals has progressed, and environmental protection has gradually become part of their lives. 上海419
“We see little rubbish left on the mountains now. Every year bef

r digging the caterpillar fungus so as to reduce damage to the pasture. They’ve also learned the habit of taking their food wa
ste down the mountains. Their conscientiousness has grown a lot,” he recalled.
“When people’s awareness of the environment improves, my work becomes 上海419
much easier,” echoed Lekga, who has worked as a conservator for three and a half years.
As the environmental status advances, the wildlife population increases. One problem, accordin 上海419品茶微信
g to locals, is damage to houses, livestock and people caused by animals such as brown bears and wolves.
To address such concerns, Sanj 上海419iangyuan National Park’s managem
ent committee has purchased insurance for more than 17,000 ecological conservators.
“I used to be a herder. I moved out from my pasture because I learned lives
tock cause damage to the land,” recalled 50-year-old Dorje Tsering, a Tibetan herd 上海419品茶微信
sman who moved to downtown Yeqing village in Yushu’s Zhidoi county around six years ago.
After relocation, Dorje Tsering and his family now receive an annual sub
sidy of 2,100 yuan ($300) each, paid for by the county government. The family also mak
es money by picking chongcao, or Chinese caterpillar fungus, every year in May and June, as many other villagers do. Cat
erpillar fungus is one of the most precious ingredients in traditional Chinese medicine.
