Case Studies in Chinese Health Care Reform
From Economic Observer Online:
After two years of deliberation, the draft of China’s health care reform was finally released for public scrutiny on October 14. The reform aimed to provide universal health care for all rural and urban Chinese in the future, and to quell increased complaints over rising medical costs.
However, the draft drew a swarm of criticism from industry players. The EO holds that it is much more meaningful and helpful to explore the local reform experience rather than be limited to theoretical debates. With that in mind, the EO explored local health care reform schemes around China.
