Since the 1990s, the Hong Kong public health sector has been under constant review. there has been increasing emphasis on the need for major changes in its structure and funding, and traditional Chinese medicine has also received formal recognition.

This book covers the period from the British colonisation of Hong Kong in 1841 through to the present day. It looks at the way in which the health sector developed, the structural arrangements that resulted, and the manner in which the health system functions today.

For those involved in the sector, this will be essential reading. With the system's colonial origins, and the presence of complementary therapies, the book makes an interesting case study for anyone working in public health.

Robin Gauld is senior lecturer in health policy, Department of Preventive and Social Medicine, University of Otago. He has taught at the City University of Hong Kong.

Derek Gould is a retired Principal Assistant Secretary for Health and Welfare in the Hong Kong Government, now turned consultant. He also lectures on health policy and public administration at various universities.
