As the first human right, the right to life and health has been effectively protected under the active epidemic prevention and control in China. However, in a major pandemic, the protection of the right to life and health will inevitably face conflicts with other ways of realizing human rights. According to the current domestic regulation policy, it examines the life healthy rights and interests of different interests, and summarizes the experience and lessons. Under the logic of mutual agreement of system and governance, four ways to improve the protection of life and right to health in China are put forward: the balance of interests based on the conflict of rights, the priority of life and right to health; equal protection for all types of vulnerable groups and special protection when necessary; coordinating and improving epidemic prevention and control capacity based on the epidemic prevention and control system under the leadership of the CPC, China will coordinate and improve its capacity for epidemic prevention and control. To formulate a policy evaluation system based on the implementation of policies guaranteeing life and right to health. The comprehensive use of the above four improvement paths will ensure the realization of different interest subjects' right to life and health in a more effective way.
