Assessing government health expenditure in China (English)

This study of government expenditures in health in China based on fieldwork covers the following subject: subsidies for health care providers for health administration, disease control, and maternal and child health facilities; subsidies provided to consumers for medical insurance; trends and composition of total expenditures on health, with illustrations from Zhejiang province and Shaanxi province; and recurrent expenses in health. The report further tracks existing disparities in spending among different areas, urban and rural, and among minorities. Lastly, the report identifies the influence of income inequality on the equitable distribution of government health appropriations; the disease burden borne by impoverished residents; the potential for an increased incidence of disease among residents lacking medical insurance; and the effect government allocations to health facilities used by the rich increases disparities among the poor
