China plans major revamp of public hospitals
China plans a major revamp of its public hospitals as part of its long-awaited reform of the national healthcare system. Health Minister Chen Zhu said a key part of the reform will be aimed at changing the way hospitals make profits. "As China aims to provide universal medical service to 1.3 billion people, state-run hospitals must be overhauled," Chen was quoted as saying at a national health meeting. China's hospitals have been criticized for their lack of access, huge fees and poor doctor service.
