A Medical History of Hong Kong: 1942–2015 (Forthcoming)
Moira M. W. Chan-Yeung
The Chinese University Press

To know where we are going, we must also know where we came from.

This book gives an account of Hong Kong’s medical and health development from the Second World War to the present day, investigates how medical and health services grew and adapted as Hong Kong’s political and the socio-economic landscape—and the world beyond it—changed, and continued changing. The author is a clinician-scientist rather than a social scientist, her writing is therefore based on her first-hand knowledge of the changes in the Hong Kong medical and healthcare scene during the period 1942–2015, and the book has also been enriched by her meticulous research via the archives of available government publications, other literature, and media reports.

This book is a sequel to A Medical History of Hong Kong: 1842–1941.


“This book presents an unbiased and scientific analysis of events which prompted the authorities and the public to consider, evaluate, and ultimately implement policies that resulted in the gradual improvement of the healthcare system in Hong Kong.”

–Rosie T. T. Young, The University of Hong Kong


Moira M. W. Chan-Yeung is Professor Emeritus of Medicine, University of British Columbia and Honorary Professor of Medicine, University of Hong Kong.
