Rural kids ‘need better healthcare’ – Zhang Feng

From The China Daily:

More money must be invested in China’s healthcare system to ensure children receive effective medical treatment, an official from the Ministry of Health told China Daily yesterday.

Shortage of funds is the main reason for the lack of medical treatment for rural children, said Zhang Xun, vice-director of the Department of Maternal and Child Healthcare and Community Health under the ministry.

In 2003, half of rural infants, aged five and under, who died from diseases, did not receive hospital treatment before they died, according to a report submitted earlier this week to a conference focusing on the situation of Women and Children in China.
