The National Committee on US-China Relations, an educational organization that encourages understanding of China and the United States between citizens of both countries, invited Mark McClellan, Director of the Margolis-Center, to lead the U.S. delegation on a new track II dialogue on healthcare. In partnership with the National School of Development at Peking University, the Committee is conducting an ongoing dialogue that brings together American and Chinese experts from academia, think tanks, and corporate representatives from different industrial sectors to discuss the healthcare system of each country, including innovation, population health, universal health coverage, and areas for cooperation.
The first healthcare dialogue took place in Washington, D.C in July 2017. Following the dialogue, the committee drafted a consensus document with recommendations for improving population health and healthcare in both countries. The next dialogue will take place in Beijing in January 2018.
