In recent years, due to the serious harm to human health and air environment, PM2.5 has become a heated issue in Chinese government and society. The definition and hazards of PM2.5 is introduced briefly in this paper. Combined with the relevant PM2.5 research data, the Chinese overall PM2.5 pollution status is also discussed, which pointed out that the major sources of pollution and the existence of major problems. Finally, the effective measures to prevent and control PM2.5 pollution are recommended from the technology dimension, the policy dimension, the education dimension as well as the personal behavior aspect.
