Effect of social medical security on residents' health and economic burden of disease

Our objective is to explore and analyse the effect of social medical security on residents' health and economic burden of diseases. We analysed the national data of China to figure out the impact of medical security on the residents' health and the economic burden of disease. The investigation found that reasonable medical security played a key role in residents' health; with the improvement of medical security policies and the increase of government’ investments, the residents paid much less for their diseases, reducing their economic burden. After generalizing the previous studies, it is not hard to find that a sound medical security improves the health of people and eases the economic burden of disease in positive, but some people don’t agree with it for its lack of evidences.
