According to a national survey on senior citizens conducted by the China National Committee on Aging, poor health remains a big problem hindering the life quality of the elderly.

The survey reported about 22 percent of elderly citizens in cities and 95.2 percent in rural areas do not have a pension, despite an 60-percent pension income increase for senior citizens with pensions since 2000. Only 27.9 percent of the elderly urban population and 23.1 percent of the elderly rural population consider themselves completely healthy or reasonably healthy. About 55.3 percent of elderly people in rural areas don't have basic medical insurance.
