New plans focus on Tibetan women and children in poverty

June 7, 2017 -- The newly issued women and children development plans (2016-2020) in Tibet will pay special attention to women and children in remote and poverty-stricken areas, said Liu Xuan, deputy director of Tibet’s Working Committee on Women and Children.

Data shows that the health of Tibetan women and children has notably improved during the 12th Five-Year-Plan period. The maternal death rate dropped to 1 out of every 1,000 women and the infant mortality rate fell to 16 out of every 1,000 infants.

Great progresses have also been made in education, employment and  rights protection for women and children.

In order to attract and retain medical talents, favorable policies such as increasing allowances and rewards will be adopted in farming and pastoral areas, especially in remote areas with high altitude.
