How China’s Medical Anti-Corruption Crackdown is Unfolding

An article by The Wire China, “A Crackdown Comes for Healthcare,” discusses how China’s campaign to crack down on medical corruption across its healthcare sector is unfolding—now over half a year since the campaign launched—and what underlying issues remain unaddressed. Dr. Winnie Yip, who co-authored a study published last year on medical corruption in China, is among the experts who shared their insights. Dr. Yip describes the market-driven nature of China’s hospitals and what can be done to curb corruptive behavior of healthcare personnel and administrators. “The crackdown is right, but we need to have a more systemic way to deal with things rather than just dealing with one problem without fixing the underlying causes,” she urges.
