    Abstract

    China’s health policies mandate equality and attempt to raise awareness about disease prevention. Medical equality is also at the heart of China’s latest, widely discussed and debated health reform. Known as ‘ yiliao gaige ’, or ‘ yigai ’ for short, the reform intends to address not just rising levels of disease and the inequality arising from this, but also growing population discontent toward the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) governance strategies.
