China to scale up malformations aid


The program, first launched in 2017 to help impoverished patients, will be expanded to cover 31 provincial regions across the country, according to a circular from the commission, xinhuanet.com reported.

Under the program, patients at or under 18 from households with economic difficulties will be eligible for subsidies, which range from ¥3,000 ($446.4) to ¥30,000.

Official data suggest that more than 200,000 new-borns show clinically visible defects at birth annually in China, with most being structural congenital disorders.
