Di Sun

Abstract


Shanghai launched a wilding heath system reform from 2010 due to the unreasonable medical allocation between city and suburb that restricts the equalization of medical service. Under this background , the research finds that the gap between city and suburb is considerable big. So the paper uses the data of resident population and the means of Lorenz curve and Gini coefficient to analyze the equity of medical resources allocation among seventeen counties in Shanghai. As a result, from the point of population allocation, it is relative equity, but it is not visible equity between city and suburb. Therefore, the government should increase investment to the area of lack of medical resources which lies in suburb. And according to the market demand to allocate the medical resources, so gradually improve the health level of the residents, and reduce the pressure of the difficulty and high prices about seeing a doctor.
