Southwest China's Tibet Autonomous Region has stepped up efforts to protect children's rights and interests, greatly improving their living and developing conditions, according to local authorities.

In recent years, Tibet has given priority to education and carried out the “three-guarantee educational policy” in rural areas, according to Tibet Women and Children Working Committee.

Under the three-guarantee policy, rural students can enjoy free eating, lodging and educational fee from primary school to senior high school.

Tibet will also strive to push forward preschool bilingual education during the 12th Five-Year Plan period (2011-2015).

In addition, Tibet has established women and children healthcare institutions at prefectural and county levels in recent years.

The mortality rate of new-born babies and kids under five had decreased from 35.28% and 57.2% in 2000 to 20.69% and 28.15% in 2010 respectively, and the immunization coverage rate exceeded 93%, according to the data released by Tibet Women and Children Working Committee.

Meanwhile, Tibet has set up 49 cultural centers, 239 cultural stations and 4 public libraries to optimize the social environment for children's development.
