Video: China's healthcare challenge

The Chinese government is launching a $125bn, three-year plan to reform its healthcare system

    The Chinese government is launching a $125bn, three-year plan to reform its healthcare system, hoping to expand basic coverage to 90 per cent of the population.

    But in a country where less than half of the population is currently covered and decent healthcare remains beyond the reach of many, implementing the plan is an ambitious project.

    Al Jazeera's Melissa Chan takes a look at the state of healthcare in China and why systematic problems make it difficult for the government to improve it.
