Developing Evaluation Capacity in the Health Sector in China: Collaboration with the China National Health Development Research Centre
The State Council of the People’s Republic of China implemented a new round of health sector reform plans in April 2009, which provided a blueprint for the country’s renewed efforts to provide universal coverage of basic health care for all Chinese by 2020. The new policy proposed major reforms in the following four areas: 1) the public health system; 2) the medical care delivery system; 3) the health security system; and 4) the pharmaceutical system. The Evaluation Centre along with researchers at the China National Health Development Centre and the International Development Research Centre (IDRC) designed and delivered a program of evaluation capacity building activities to respond to the deficit of evaluation capacity in China’s health sector.
