HEALTH CARE



Your health should always be one of your top priorities in any country. ExpatsInChina has compiled a Health Guide full of useful resources--articles and listings of where to go.

China is the home to one quarter of the world's population, and increasingly its 1.3 billion people have flocked into highly prosperous cities like Shanghai and Beijing. China's gross domestic product (GDP) has grown at 8 to 10 per cent for 25 years, making its economy among the world's largest. Yet, the 900 million rural population lives in abject poverty. In the 1980s, abandoning Mao's socialist and collectivist strategy of central governmental control with social equality, the Chinese privatized and decentralized health care, resulting in huge disparities between urban and rural populations.

In China, the standards of medical care and availability of medicine vary immensely from region to region. Major cities like Beijing, Shanghai and Xian etc. have well equipped medical facilities. Some hospitals have separate divisions for foreigners. There are Doctors and Nurses who can speak very well English. Highly qualified staff assures good medical attention. The fees are very reasonable.
