National Health Commission: Strengthen departmental linkage to ensure stable supply of shortage drugs throughout the chain. The four-level response system for shortages of drugs at the national, provincial, city, and county levels has gradually been improved and effectively operated.

The State-owned Assets Supervision and Administration Commission of the State Council continues to promote state-owned enterprises to fulfill their social responsibilities in supplying medicines in shortage and to play their "reservoir" function. The Ministry of Ecology and Environment will adopt flexible law enforcement in accordance with the law for environmental violations involving shortages.
