NEW YORK, Oct. 17, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Deerfield announced today a strategic collaboration with the Peking Union School of Public Health (PUSPH) to advance healthcare in China. Deerfield and PUSPH will collaborate to address healthcare needs in China using PUSPH's local expertise and Deerfield's US and European experience.  The collaboration aims at sharing its findings through peer-reviewed joint publications.

The collaboration will focus on areas such as medicine procurement, supply chain management, antibiotics misuse, and hospital service quality assessment.

Deerfield will work closely with the PUSPH Dean Dr. Yuanli Liu and Food and Drug Safety and Policy Research Director Dr. Jing Sun.  Dr. Yuanli Liu founded the US-China Health Summit during his tenure at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health prior to joining PUSPH.  Over the years, he has been committed to creating direct discussion among policy makers, academic experts and business leaders to transform global healthcare.   

Peking Union Medical College's emphasis on preventive medicine and public health dates back to the 1920s, when John B. Grant chaired the Department of Public Health.  The new Peking Union School of Public Health (PUSPH) was established in 2014, with a mission to improve the public health by conducting inter-disciplinary, innovative and translational research, informing policy, serving communities, and educating future public health leaders.

"It is our privilege to partner with Dr. Liu and the PUSPH to develop findings that can benefit the Chinese population and can also be shared globally to advance healthcare," said Jim Flynn, Deerfield's Managing Partner. "We look forward to a productive and innovative partnership."

"We are excited to work with a healthcare expert like Deerfield that has the skills, broad based understanding and technical knowledge to help develop findings that can advance healthcare." said Professor Yuanli Liu.


PUSPH offers master and doctoral degrees in public health, epidemiology, social medicine and health management etc.
