More residents recognize healthy lifestyle and live it

SOME 14.38 percent of local residents between 15 and 69 years old are considered to be well informed about their health and putting that knowledge to use in their lives, according to officials from the Shanghai Health Education Institute.

Such residents have not only basic health care knowledge, but also an understanding of what a healthy lifestyle is.

The proportion of knowledgeable people who use that information in their lives improved by 7.41 percentage points since 2008 thanks to health education and people's rising health awareness, said institute officials.

The institute issued the Paper on Health Education by health policy expert Hu Jinhua in both Chinese and English to push health education among the public, and they hope to soon have 16 percent of local residents equipped with and using proper health knowledge.
