Since economic reforms were launched in the late 1970s, China’s rapid economic growth has helped lift several hundred million people out of poverty, and led to a higher standard of living and improved health outcomes throughout the country. China’s fast changing country context is now characterized by rapid industrialization, massive internal migration and urbanization, increasing environmental health threats, rising disparities and an aging population. With a highly diverse population of over 1.3 billion people spread over a vast land area including remote and hard-to-reach mountainous regions, China faces a variety of health and development challenges.  Jan 24, 2013, 3:32 AM Simon Poon

Malaysia is an upper-middle income country with a stable political system and democratically elected government. The Outline Perspective Plan and the Ninth Malaysia Development Plan articulate the national priorities which include (among others), promoting growth with equity, strengthening human resource development, improving the standard and sustainability of quality of life and pursuing environmentally sustainable development. The health status in Malaysia is relatively good, being on target to achieve the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). An extensive and comprehensive primary health care (PHC) system provides good access to care. Total health expenditure (THE) is only 4.3% of GDP, with about 45% from the public sector, but 40% of THE is out of pocket from private households. The national health priorities include enhancing the health care delivery system to increase access to quality care, and reducing the disease burden, both communicable and non-communicable diseases. The key health challenges are posed by thechanging disease pattern with high prevalence of non-communicable diseases and their risk factors, a rapidly growing private sector and high proportion of health expenditure being out of pocket, and a large population of migrant workers who are at high risk of communicable diseases.  Jan 24, 2013, 3:35 AM Simon Poon
