The board was founded in 1914 as the China Medical Commission of the Rockefeller Foundation and became independent in 1928. It mainly funded the development of the Peking Union Medical College until 1951. In 1980, it resumed its activities in China.


Today, China Medical Board focuses on health policy and systems reform and medical professional education reform. It has projects throughout China and in parts of Southeast Asia.
