This chapter analyzes the philosophy, strategies, and implementation of anti-malaria programs in the context of the development of health care services in China before the late 1970s when new economic policies contributed to changes in such programs. It also examines the impact of post-1979 reforms on the development of health services, especially with regard to anti-malaria efforts. It notes that a major concern of this study is an evaluation of the role of the state in the organization, administration, and delivery of health care to meet the health needs of the population.
