China has recently completed its 2009–11 healthcare reform. The reform has come at a high cost: although the Ministry of Health intended to invest CNY850bn ($135bn) in the plan, total investment has now exceeded CNY1,100bn ($175bn). While it is unclear why the total investment exceeded the budget, it is evident that the Chinese healthcare system in general is largely underfunded.
