    Healthcare reform plan to be publicized in March

    China's long-awaited reform plan for its failing healthcare system will be released in March shortly after the top legislature's annual session, said Health Minister Chen Zhu.

    The plan has almost been completed and the ministry is still soliciting opinions from experts and other departments, Chen was quoted by Friday's Modern Express, based in East China's Jiangsu Province, as saying.

    The plan covers four aspects of the medical system: public health care, medical treatment, medical insurance and supply of medicines, he said at a meeting held on Thursday in Jiangsu.

    The minister, also a renowned molecular biologist, called on doctors to improve their professional ethics. "Doctors shall not act as puppets of big pharmaceutical companies," he said.
