Please pay attention to "healthy weight" and understand whether your weight is within a healthy range. We should manage our weight well and reduce the incidence rate of major chronic diseases, which requires the joint efforts of the whole society. " On the 18th, Mao Qunan, Deputy Director of the National Health Office and Director of the Planning, Development and Informatization Department of the National Health Commission, said so.

This April is the 36th Patriotic Health Month, with the theme of "Healthy Urban Health Weight". On the 18th, the National Health Commission held a press conference in Qujing City, Yunnan Province, introducing the relevant situation of patriotic health work around this theme.

Mao Qun'an stated that with the changes in the way people live and the improvement of living standards in the country, there is a higher proportion of overweight and obesity among the population, showing an upward trend. Especially for teenagers, overweight and obesity, experts suggest that this has a significant impact on their future healthy growth. The occurrence of overweight, obesity, and even chronic diseases is not only a prominent public health problem facing China, but also a common problem facing the world.

Mao Qun'an stated that the health department should provide technical support and disseminate authoritative scientific knowledge and skills to help the public understand how to judge whether their weight is healthy and how to maintain a healthy weight for themselves and their families. At the same time, comprehensive measures need to be taken from various aspects such as sports and medical and health services to effectively manage. Therefore, this year's Patriotic Health Month emphasizes the promotion of a civilized and healthy lifestyle throughout society, and the prevention and control of chronic diseases.

The National Health Commission and the National Love and Health Office will focus on the theme of "Healthy Urban Health Weight", effectively combining the theme promotion of Patriotic Health Month with the annual health promotion activities. We will mobilize the power of the entire system to carry out authoritative science popularization activities for society, and will also release a new version of 66 articles on resident health literacy. Mao Qun'an said that he hopes that various aspects across the country can organize and carry out mass science popularization and practice activities, and promote typical practices, promoting the formation of a new pattern of "everyone participating, co building and sharing" in the comprehensive governance of a healthy China.

At the press conference, Xu Wei, Deputy Director of Yunnan Provincial Health Commission, Li Xianxiang, Mayor of Qujing City People's Government, and Li Changming, Director of Taizhou Love Health Association and Deputy Mayor of Taizhou City People's Government in Zhejiang Province, respectively introduced their experiences and practices in promoting patriotic health movements.
