GHA Working Group China

The Working Group China brings together all GHA members who are interested in working on health related issues in China and/or in the Chinese health sector. The working group is co-chaired by Professor Dr med. Dr h.c. Manfred Dietel (Charité) and Verena Kantel (Bayer AG) and meets physically twice a year.

Under the very well-established label in China and activities of the German-Sino Health Care Group (GSHCG) the GHA – German Health Alliance brings together German organizations and leading Chinese stakeholders in the health care sector, sharing know-how and technologies related to integrated health care.

On the basis of a framework agreement between the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy and the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC), GSHCG-GHA strives to strengthen the bilateral cooperation in all areas of health care.

The GHA Working Group China is also committed in strengthening health policy at the various political levels. The focus is on promoting the foreign policy dimension of German and EU health policy both in bilateral relations with China and even better coordination with China in multilateral forums. In the GHA Working Group China, GHA-BDI position papers were published, in which the health industry positions itself for the first time on a cross-sectoral basis on issues relating to German and EU political cooperation with China.

In addition to the political dimension, the working group focuses on concrete projects to be realized in China and in Germany. As examples in China, the international university hospital planned in Hangzhou, a Comprehensive Cancer Center, and the establishment of a network for digital diagnostics in various fields should be mentioned here. On the other hand, the German side can learn a lot in the field of IT networking in the hospital system of large cities. Projects are also being planned in this area.
