The Hong Kong healthcare system is composed of two sectors; a private track, and a government sponsored public track. The private sector offers numerous options and luxurious perks, but comes at a very high cost. The public sector, subsidized by the Hong Kong government, is provided to eligible residents at a very low fee. However, the public sector faces a number of growing problems including overcrowding, long wait times and excessive bureaucracy.
In order to address problems within the public sector, the Hong Kong government launched a health reform in 2008. Split into two sections, it aimed to enhance public-private partnerships, shorten wait times, and a whole plethora of other promises. Not much progress has been made and, as a result, healthcare costs in Hong Kong remain very high.
