Chapter Summary

This index presents a list of terms and concepts that occur in the book Saving Lives in Wartime China: How Medical Reformers Built Modern Healthcare Systems amid War and Epidemics, 1928-1945. In early twentieth century China, the idea of saving children had little traction. China's children were targets of human oppression, devastating diseases and dangerous malpractice. In "Medicine", Lu Xun chose tuberculosis, a disease long embedded in the Chinese population, as the symbol of early death. This disease was believed to have killed a million or more Chinese people a year, many of them children.

Keywords: Chinese population; healthcare system
