Dartmouth to Help with China Health Reform Effort (Bloomberg Businessweek)


The Ministry of Health of the People’s Republic of China and Dartmouth recently announced a plan to support the advancement of health care delivery and services in China. The plan is part of a new five-year strategic partnership that aims to help increase health equity, reduce health expenditures, train new health care leadership, and advance the quality of health services across China.

An article written by the Associated Press, published by Bloomberg Businessweek, discusses the new partnership between Dartmouth and the Ministry of Health of the People’s Republic of China. Albert Mulley Jr., director of the Dartmouth Center for Health Care Delivery Science, and co-chair of the committee directing the new partnership, spoke to the AP about the goals of the plan. “Given that they spend currently less than 5 percent of their (gross domestic product) on health care, and they know that’s going to grow, they really would like to learn along with us how to invest in health care reforms that really produce the most value,” Mulley said.
