This book explores the changing landscapes of commercialisation of medical care in China. First work of its kind, it discusses how the rise of market socialism, coupled with de-collectivisation of agriculture and autonomisation of hospitals in rural and urban China, have fragmented the health service system. The volume examines the public hospital reforms; rise of the medical–industrial complex; the emerging public–private partnerships in the health sector; challenges of financing; and, the growing inequalities in access to health services, to present a comprehensive view of Chinese health care system over the last four decades.

This topical book will be useful to scholars and researchers of Chinese studies, Chinese economy, public health, health management, social health and medicine, medical sociology, sociology, political economy, public policy and public administration as well as policymakers and practitioners.
