Abstract

Expanding the supply of health services is the basic direction of promoting the con-struction of "Healthy China 2030". Based on China's provincial panel data from 2007 to 2019, this paper demonstrates an "inverted U-shaped" relationship between economic growth targets and health service provision, with the central and western regions more likely to favor productive expenditures over livelihood expenditures under the con-straints. Fiscal decentralization plays a moderating role, and the scale of government health expenditure plays a mediating role. The government should set reasonable economic growth targets, adopt differentiated policies, optimize the decentralization of expenditure, and increase the supply of health services.
