What the government is trying to achieve during the 12th Five-Year Plan (2011-15):

Make sure the country's nursing homes can meet the needs of 3 percent of the elderly population by adding 3.4 million beds in nursing homes

All communities in urban areas and 50 percent of communities in rural areas should be equipped with elderly-friendly facilities and provide senior services

At least 50 percent of revenue generated from lottery sales for civil affairs authorities should be spent in developing senior services

Every city should have at least one professional nursing institution dedicated to the elderly with performance limitations or disabilities
