Using relevant literature, we have been trying to understand the current situation concerning occupational diseases in China and to investigate how to improve the situation. However we have found that the information disclosed by the government is very limited. Additional information can be found in medical literature, although it does not provide more basic data, such as the number of cases of different occupational diseases and the gender, occupation and city of patients who have contracted occupational diseases. With such limited resources, it has only been possible to understand the situation by visiting the victims of occupational diseases in hospital.
