About this book

This volume provides a unique perspective on the market reforms currently taking place in Chinese health care. The authors come to grips with the changes taking place in Chinese health care and its effect on the traditional doctor-patient relationship, but also its positive effects on the availability and quality of health care particularly in urban areas. In doing so the various authors wrestle with moral, political and social issues deeply ingrained in Chinese culture as well as the perceived practical and moral difficulties associated with the change to a market oriented economy especially in area of health care. This volume should be of particular interest to bioethicists, those interested in contemporary Chinese philosophy, and of course those working in health care policy, Chinese policy, comparative health care policy, or any combination thereof.
