China’s Healthcare System and Reform

Edited by Lawton Robert Burns and Gordon G. Liu

This volume provides a comprehensive review of China’s healthcare system and policy reforms in the context of the global economy.

Following a value-chain framework, the 16 chapters cover the payers, the providers, and the producers (manufacturers) in China’s system. It also provides a detailed analysis of the historical development of China’s healthcare system, the current state of its broad reforms, and the uneasy balance between China’s market-driven approach and governmental regulation. Most importantly, it devotes considerable attention to the major problems confronting China, including chronic illness, public health, and long-term care and economic security for the elderly. Burns and Liu have assembled the latest research from leading health economists and political scientists, as well as senior public health officials and corporate executives, making this book an essential read for industry professionals, policymakers, researchers, and students studying comparative health systems across the world.
