MetadataShow full item record
This article summarises the major changes in the role of township health centres since the initiation of socioeconomic reforms. It begins by describing the officially defined functions of health centres. Using a case study of Donglan, a poor county in southwestern China, it then shows that a wide gulf exists between the ideal model and reality in poor areas.
