Results:

On this basis, several relevant policy recommendations are put forward.

Conclusions:

Collaboration and cooperation are critical for the overall coordination and sustainable development of public health in China, and there is still work to be done in order to achieve appropriate cooperation and collaboration between different entities in the provision of public health services.
