Foreign Capital Investment in Healthcare: China, India and Brazil

A report by the World Health Organization (WHO) on healthcare financing systems for universal coverage of 2010 suggests discussing innovative ways to increase health investment funds at a global level.
As an example of change in the entire healthcare management system is China, which has pledged by 2020 to provide health services "safe, effective, convenient and affordable" to all urban and rural residents with "a medical clinic and a hospital in each region of the country". In addition to the US $ 124 billion initially invested to restructure out-dated services, the government authorized foreign capital investment across the Chinese healthcare market, including tax incentives in some cities.
India’s situation is similar to Brazilian’s reality: lack of healthcare professionals and poor infrastructure. In 2007, the strategy to raise more money, and restructure healthcare, has allowed foreign capital investment in hospitals, which brought benefits to the country, according to a report by Rupa Chanda, published by the World Health Organization.
Brazil has recently changed the law n┬║ 8.080/1990 and now authorizes foreign capital investment in hospitals.
