China's Healthcare Sector Background

In 2009, China announced plans to expand healthcare system reforms with the goal of providing universal healthcare by 2020. With a growing population of over 1.3 billion, China has a rising demand for quality healthcare services. Driving this demand are factors such as aging demographics, public healthcare reforms, and increasing affluence and urbanization. In addressing these issues, China is working to improve the management and day-to-day functions of healthcare facilities through the use of advanced medical technologies and healthcare management best practices.

On a two-week visit to the United States, decision-makers from China's National Healthcare Security Administration will learn about U.S. health system operations, including organizational structure, healthcare and health insurance policies, and innovative U.S. technologies that can improve patient care and safety. The itinerary features training, meetings, and site visits with U.S. institutions, government agencies, and firms that supply related products, services, and solutions.
