"Mentionable that the last World Health Statistics 2011 report by World Health Organization (WHO) had showed India lacking behind in the health care sector.
In fact it has showed that China has done much better and outperformed India in improving general health conditions of its citizens during the past decade.
The Chinese, according to the WHO report has less infectious disease cases, has a wider coverage of various medical services and is seeing a longer life expectancy than India.
Another WHO report on health systems financing showcased the medical insurance reforms done by China as an example for developing countries.
China had initiated a scheme in 2003 to increase the proportion of its population covered by formal insurance from 15 percent in 2003 to 90 percent by 2011. The scheme has greatly improved medical financing in rural areas."
