Lancet Series on China's Health

The special series in the Lancet on health system reform in China is fully available online, after free registration. See also Lancet's special online focus on China here.

Lancet is being a good global citizen in providing this material free of charge but navigating their web site continues to be something of a challenge.

Also, reading between the lines, it seems the rivalry between Harvard's Lincoln Chen and Bill Hsiao continues apace. Chen is co-author of four articles in the series while Hsiao does not appear at all.

Both men are experts on health care systems in general and China in particular. Chen often starts the conversation by focusing on health care workers while Hsiao begins with entire systems. Seems like you might want both views.
