Chapter Summary

The 30 years of planned economy that followed the founding of the People's Republic of China in 1949 brought a great deal of institutional support to the development of health care at the time. This chapter discusses the developments and changes within the field of Chinese reproductive health over the past 30 years. It intends to provide an overview of the major events in China's health care reforms (HCR) history, key choices that have been made and their influence on society. By taking as an example maternal and child health (MCH), the chapter gives a picture of the impact and change in attitude introduced by HCR in regards to reproductive health. Finally, it concludes that the health care reforms will find their right path to both suit China's current characteristics and promote its future health development.

Keywords: China; health care reforms (HCR); maternal and child health (MCH); reproductive health
