Abstract

This case traces the development of the healthcare system in Hong Kong, and the factors building up towards the assignment of the Harvard Team to review the system. It also takes a brief look at the controversy surrounding the release of the Harvard Report, as well as the concerns of the Government in providing a sustainable and viable healthcare system for the public. Since its release, public discussion on the recommendations of the Harvard Report had been very active. In March 2000, the South China Morning Post (SCMP) reported that the Government was due to release the much-anticipated consultation paper on the healthcare reform for Hong Kong in April 2000. What form would the prescription most likely take? More importantly, would it be accepted by the people of Hong Kong? As a reform in the healthcare system would affect many parties, each with their own views and interests, the Government needed to find a balance that would not compromise the quality of healthcare received by patients.
