Vice Premier Li Keqiang has called for deepening health care reform in a bid to build a health care system that benefits the entire population.

Li made the remarks in an article to be published Wednesday in the upcoming issue of Qiushi, or seeking truth, the flagship magazine of the Communist Party of China (CPC).

The reform of the health care system is an important well-being project for the health of the entire Chinese population, as well as a project that coordinates economic and social development, Li said.

Li, also a member of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee, noted that the reform has achieved significant progress and preliminary achievements since it was started over two years ago.

However, more work should be done to promote the reform in an active yet prudent manner based on the principle of "wide coverage and sustainability," Li said.

Li's article also specified a list of urgent issues, including the implementation of full-coverage medical insurance, the reform of government-funded hospitals, and the formulation of a detailed plan for the reform of health care system over the next five years.
