Govenment provides health services to all classes of people, eligible poor people can get 80% of their treatment free, but they need to buy medicines.

Health care was provided in both rural and urban areas through a three-tiered system. In rural areas the first tier was made up of barefoot doctors working out of village medical centers. They provided preventive and primary-care services, with an average of two doctors per 1,000 people. At the next level were the township health centers, which functioned primarily as out-patient clinics for about 10,000 to 30,000 people each. These centers had about ten to thirty beds each, and the most qualified members of the staff were assistant doctors. The two lower-level tiers made up the “rural collective health system” that provided most of the country’s medical care.

3 levels health care structure is as follows:

  • Sanitation Central Hospital (Country): 50000 to 90000 people
    • Sanitation Centre (township level): 10000 people
      • Sanitation Station (county level): 1000 to 3000 people
