A new report says China can offer better health care for its citizens at affordable costs if it restructures its delivery model to focus on providing integrated primary care for its rapidly aging population, and reforming public hospitals so they mainly treat complex and acute cases. Developed by the World Bank Group, the World Health Organization, the Ministry of Finance, the National Health and Family Planning Commission, and the Ministry of Human Resources and Social Security of China, Deepening Health Reform in China, is the most comprehensive report published so far on China’s health reform.
