The Effect of Anti-poverty Policies on Improving the Health Status of Rural Residents in China – What could be Proposed from the Lessons Learnt in Australia?

Project: Research

Project Details


This project analyses the effect of China’s anti-poverty policy on promoting improvement in the health of rural residents. This study will construct a Health Improvement Evaluation Index using China’s Labor-force Dynamics Survey (CLDS) data collected by the Center for Social Science Survey at the Sun Yat-Sen University. We will use the data of 2012, 2014 and 2016 to evaluate the effect of China’s anti-poverty policies. This research will also explore the Australian experience of universal health care programs and other health support provisions for low-income groups, and the feasibility of the Australian experience for China.
