Dual Practice by Public Health Providers in Shandong and Sichuan Provinces, China
Private practice in the health sector was re-introduced from 1980, when China began its economic reform from a planned economy to a market economy. But today the total number of private sector providers is quite few, because the government does not encourage the growth of private sector providers. However, dual practice (DP) is quite common and a major concern from the point of view of health policy- making as little is known about it. The aim of this study was to describe policies and regulations of DP, the current situation, its impact on access to services and physician behaviour, and to provide evidence for future policy decisions.
