The Chinese public medical care system was established after the 1949 revolution. However, there is no necessary connection between Marxism and the public medical care system; and although the current system may be reasonable from an historical point of view, it can no longer be justified ethically as an all-embracing medical system, since it does not provide equitable health care for the people. Keywords: Marxism-Leninism, Chinese health care, People's Republic of China, equitable health care, public health care, bioethics CiteULike Connotea Del.icio.us What's this?
