SHENZHEN residents can enjoy 33 public health service items for free or at a discount at community clinics, according to a meeting on the construction of a grass-roots health service system held by the Shenzhen government Tuesday.

The items include 11 basic national public health items, such as resident health record management services, health education services and vaccination services.

Five major national public health items include key programs for early diagnosis and treatment of cancer, and services to prevent mother-to-child transmission of HIV, syphilis and Hepatitis B.

The 17 local service items include free pre-marital and pre-pregnancy health checks, and genetic metabolic disease screening programs for newborns.
