Kui Xing


In order to understand the effect of financial expenditure on the grass-roots public health services, the authors conducted a questionnaire survey on residents of Bengbu, Auhui Province. In addition, the weighted TOPSIS method is adopted to analyze the effect of financial investment in the grass-roots public health services from the perspective of residents, thus finding the problems in the grass-roots public health services. Finally, this paper puts forward some suggestions, such as increasing the financial investment in the grass-roots public health services, and improving the supervision and management mechanism of financial investment.
