Our History


Initiated by Dr. Yuanli Liu, the Director of "Harvard China Initiative", and Dr. Jing Ma at Harvard Medical School, the U.S.-China Health Summit was inaugurated at Harvard University in September 2011. Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Sherry Glied and Chinese Minister of Health Zhu Chen joined the conference and delivered important keynote speeches.  Since the Summit's inauguration, thousands of policymakers, academic experts, business leaders, and others who have interests in the rapidly transforming global health sectors have participated and benefited tremendously from these direct dialogues and discussions.


As a key forum for promoting exchange in the health field, the Summit has been alternately hosted by U.S. and China, receiving continuous support from The National Health and Family Planning Commission of China and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. The Summit has been on the 3rd to the 7th China-U.S. Strategic and economic dialogue (S&ED) list between 2011 and 2016. It has also been on the 6th U.S.-China consultation on people-to-people exchange (CPE) outcome list and was discussed on the 2016 7th CPE list (June, 2016).
