The general aim of this thesis is to develop proper strategies for balancing the protection of individual rights (e.g. satisfying patient needs) and the sustainability of healthcare resources in the context of Chinese healthcare system reforms. Special attention is given to drawing a fair ‘cut’ between personal responsibility and state accountability in order to make the reforms of the Chinese healthcare system more effective.
