The Rise Of The Regulatory State In The Chinese Health-Care System
- About the Author
By reviewing regulatory initiatives in health financing, service provision, pharmaceutical sector and public health, this book attempts to connect recent research with policy developments in the Chinese health-care system. While there are a small number of studies on the regulations in the Chinese health-care system, this book contributes to the literature in three ways. First, a review of the recent developments in the Chinese health-care system illustrates that the capacity and incentives of the regulatory agencies matter in the implementation and enforcement of the regulations. Second, this book also shows that some institutional arrangements in the Chinese context are particularly important for configuring the capacity and incentives of the regulatory system. Third, this book lays out the mechanisms for the regulatory reform of the Chinese health-care system.
