The Cornell Contemporary China Initiative (CCCI) lecture series welcomes Karen Eggleston to speak on China's health care system. She is the Senior Fellow at the Freeman Spogli Institute for International Studies (FSI) at Stanford University, Director of the Stanford Asia Health Policy Program and Deputy Director of the Walter H. Shorenstein Asia-Pacific Research Center at FSI and is also a Fellow with the Stanford Center for Innovation in Global Health and a Faculty Research Fellow of the National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER).
Abstract: Starting with a historical overview, this talk will focus on China’s 21st century health system reforms, including progress to date in achieving effective universal coverage, priorities set in the national health meetings, “Healthy China 2030” goals, and local experiments in strengthening patient-centered integrated care.
Eggleston will summarize recent health economics research assessing the impact of health insurance and primary care reforms, and discuss numerous challenges, including addressing the social determinants of health and disparities, fostering healthy aging, and assuring quality and accountability while improving efficiency and value.
