Twenty-First Century Barefoot Doctor (21BFD): Good Quality Primary Healthcare at Affordable Cost
Building on our long and successful track record of collaboration with Chinese peer institutions to advance research, the Harvard China Health Partnership paves the way to evidence-based policy solutions that affect the lives of millions of Chinese citizens. Our project sites are featured in Chinese media as reform examples.
Affordability and accessibility of health care services have been key social challenges in China. Since the beginning of 2009, the Chinese government began to implement an ambitious reform agenda that aimed to radically improve its health care system. Although much progress has been made in the past eight years, China’s health care system still faces a number of deeply rooted problems. The Harvard China Health Partnership aims to assess and improve this problem as China’s health care reform evolves.
