167 Pages Kalorama Information October 15, 2011 SKU: KLI6609070

China's rapid economic development and the numerous steps of reform undertaken by the Chinese central government since 1997 have had clear and observable effects upon China's total healthcare services market and its product markets for pharmaceuticals, medical devices, and in vitro diagnostics (IVD). This progress has been augmented by a Reform program in 2009, which includes increased funding to improve services.

What are the workings of China's healthcare system? How much progress has been made towards the promised vision of the CPCC in 2008 to provide "convenient and affordable access" to its people?
