Average Life Expectancy in China should be 75.8 years in 2015

People's Daily - The average life expectancy for the Chinese will reach 75.8 years by 2015, one year longer than the 2010 level, according to a health care development plan issued on Friday.

The plan also calls for increasing the number of beds in non-public medical institutions to an amount equal to 20 percent of the total number of hospital beds in China.

To encourage more people to obtain medical insurance, China will raise annual subsidies for urban and rural residents from about 240 yuan (38 U.S. dollars) to 360 yuan by 2015, the plan says.

The government will train another 150,000 general medical practitioners for local communities by the end of 2015.
