Although China has achieved great success in the reform of its medical system, it still faces great challenges in national health education, medical and healthcare talent cultivation, and healthcare legal system construction. This paper summarizes domestic and international experiences, analyzes the current situation and challenges, and makes policy recommendations to improve China's national health education, medical and healthcare education, and healthcare legal system. These policy recommendations include: developing a compulsory national health education system, aligning medical education for healthcare talents with social needs, strengthening the cultivation of general practitioners, improving the service level and accessibility of primary medical care, and promoting the introduction of "Parent Law" into medicine and health. This paper also examines and analyzes existing medical and healthcare laws and regulations.
