Chinese Law on Maternal & Infant Health Care

An imperative on mainland China that stipulated that if either of a married couple suffers from a genetic disease, appropriate contraceptive measures must be taken, including sterilization. The Chinese now have 1.8 children per family which implies that there will be a slow decline in the population with time. This contrasts with 5 children per mother in the 1970s
