Wolters Kluwer Health and China’s People’s Medical Publishing House Signs MOU to Boost Healthcare Publishing

    Wolters Kluwer Health, a leading global provider of information for healthcare professionals and students, today announced that it will work together with the People’s Health Publishing House (PMPH), the largest medical publisher in China, to expand its domestic and foreign healthcare publishing market.

    Under the MOU, Wolters Kluwer Health and PMPH will deepen and expand their collaboration. While PMPH will continue to translate Wolters Kluwer’s English publications into Chinese, the parties will make joint efforts to work with top domestic and foreign authors to develop and publish medical and nursing titles for both domestic and international markets. Wolters Kluwer’s cooperation with PMPH began in the 1990s. Since then, they have co-published over 200 titles of teaching materials and reference books in medicine and nursing.

    “The cooperation with Wolters Kluwer is an important part of our global publishing strategy,” said  Chen Xianyi, Chairman & President of PMPH. “We have a leading team of Chinese authors. By working together with Wolters Kluwer, we can not only strengthen our position as the leader in medical and nursing publications in China, but also bring our Chinese authors and publications to the international arena, making PMPH an internationally influential global medical publishing brand.”

    Susan Driscoll, President & CEO, Professional & Education, Wolters Kluwer Health added, “Wolters Kluwer publishes world-class content for healthcare professionals around the world. Through cooperation with PMPH, we can better serve China’s doctors, nurses and students during the medical reforms in China, by providing leading, credible, evidence-based content in electronic and print formats.”
