Chinese Medical Reform Draft Open to Public Debate

From Xinhua:

China issued on Tuesday a draft reform of the country’s health care system in an effort to solicit public opinion.

It’s one step toward a universal medical system which China hopes to have in place by 2020.

The concept of the draft is to ensure public medical institutions don’t operate for profit.

Changes also emphasize disease prevention, in rural areas and the development of both western and traditional medicines.

The draft listed five priorities: speeding up the establishment of a universal health care system, setting up a basic drug system, improving the grassroots health service network, providing equal public health service to rural and urban residents and pushing forward reform trials in state-run hospitals.
