This volume examines important aspects of China's century-long
search to provide appropriate and effective health care for its
people. Four subjects--disease and healing, encounters and
accommodations, institutions and professions, and people's
health--organize discussions across case studies of
schistosomiasis, tuberculosis, mental health, and tobacco and
health. Among the book s significant conclusions are the importance
of barefoot doctors in disseminating western medicine, the
improvements in medical health and services during the long
Sino-Japanese war, and the important role of the Chinese consumer.
Intended for an audience of health practitioners, historians, and
others interested in the history of medicine and health in China,
the book is one of three commissioned by the Chinese Medical Board
to mark its centennial in 2014."
