A National "Health" Policy for the Young
(Yang Hua, President of Beijing Sport University)
The government should make it a national policy to improve the health of China's children and youth. In recent years, their health has been deteriorating; if measures are not taken soon to arrest the trend, the children will become a new generation of "sick men of Asia." The government should increase expenditures on physical education and there should be mandatory monitoring of the children's physical exercises.
