China has adopted three-child policy that allows couples to have three children with the aim of optimizing the country's demographic structure and achieving long-term and balanced population development.
The policy lays out supporting measures in three areas: strengthening child nursery services, reducing the cost of childbearing and improving prenatal and postnatal services.
At a press conference on July 21, Yu Xuejun, deputy head of the National Health Commission (NHC), said the decision is more than just an improvement of the two-child birth policy. "These supporting measures focus on public concerns, integrate birth with marriage, bringing-up and education, and can help unleash the birth potential," he said.
