. china faces an extraordinary challenge of scale when it comes to its health care system reforms. of one point four billion people over half of him live in the countryside. one of the most important you health reforms has been for peasants it's only in the past twelve years that health insurance has been extended to them. the show family and their sick young son are from a small village a thousand kilometers away from beijing located in the cold far north on the border with russia. it is one of the poorest regions of china and the annual family in colorado is just
5:23 am
three thousand two hundred dollars one sixth of the national average they used to benefit from barefoot doctors for free but had to pee for all their treatment since the market reforms began in the one nine hundred eighty s. . just six months ago their only child six years old showed young began to feel ill. and you. do it into an apology of all. the hauling. we came to so if i love all your fans as a little hazard the family of all the good it will fuck previously they would have had to pay for the entire treatment themselves. no the new government run rural health insurance pays for up to ninety percent of all local hospital bills. you know i do assume the. rule is
5:24 am
a little longer term problem even though. you don't even go there. live at the new ball probably you've. made. it. yes and. then that high that they'll. eat in show young's case the local county hospital quickly realized his condition was very serious so he and his mother were unfair to the prevention hospice home. mother and son travel to harbin the provincial capital.
5:25 am
once they're out of the country the insurance scheme will cover them for seventy percent of treatment. of him and. i thought well that's why i think it was him walking up and. after the examination harbin hospital confirmed to show young has a very complex cardiac condition particularly dangerous for young children and. they're not confident they can perform the operation he needs so that it fair the family to she her hospital in beijing over one thousand kilometers away. from dying and they're all in the lather sure hope. they hog the lab which are a lot gonna have a lot piling show milesian all the two thousand years in the semi that. the family hesitates before travelling to beijing while the health insurance will cover some
5:26 am
of the cost joe young's mother is worried about the expense of this kind of operation and such a famous hospital what it's all not all they want to show is highly little billy similar to ours has a whole lot. of these are true then they show me ways out of luck through nine other bushels of the saloon. opinion. i haven't driven. show young's condition deteriorated and with that surgery his life was at risk. so the family decides that no matter what the cost of the travel to be showing for immediate treatment.
5:27 am
shall madness in the us in the us almost all the idea that the whole of the ship was a colony or how this all was in that our interest as well it. brought the. hollow . as it turned out that they travel to be just in time. by an ocean of your whole family a whole new set of chinese whom you i heard in the rather tunnel hora and therefore there are a lot of european even i think. if you know i'm not going to leave the whole game and if you know. your daughter board or. the operation in beijing will cost them about twenty five thousand dollars which is equal to eight nears income for young's whole family. if you know of this or what you write or out of. the work done to you paul would only go to iraq and if you are
5:28 am
a while harsh on the young boy or whether you were pulled out all the beer in the ring for the wrong idea about your book and all but your lack of coming. share who hospital like most hospitals in china has been a profit making business since the early one nine hundred eighty s. . the new health reform means that even those young family must take a huge loan to cover the treatment they hope they can claim at least some of it back through the insurance scheme. you know the who was here last year for not will and aren't being there for i don't draw on enough for you know that alas. died. of a heart about life. as the operation approaches and the risk of losing the family's only child becomes clear to show young's mother she asks to come in with him.
5:29 am
well that it all boat is all. the way home always a lot but. that's all you might. say . well. i. don't think. initially i'll allow that our family and. i felt it to be. the operation as a very complex one and the hospital coles and their most experienced staff including the senior needs to test. in one kind of some momentum that
5:30 am
hijos each other causing them to tell you a gene and this and that so to hell will move the console of the cell so costs are told someone to listen something some of us can go into. the machine and talk that's among us is so it's at those two that i just tell them there could consider that bullshit just let them be sent to find.
5:31 am
the best doctors in china are no world class but there are still too few of them and they are too concentrated in beijing and shanghai. it will be years before a show young could have such an operation and his regional hospital. show young is still under anaesthetic. the family can only wait at site for the final outcome. so the shots. while you are little.
5:32 am
there. are several in yourself if. you see her tell her she wants to roll with you hollis is the fearless. as you know she always shaved off a little. bit of pain any connection to the both you. and . the family can stay but they have nowhere to go. we cannot afford to tale zoho stories in the capital so they have to wait at the back of the hospital. is a testing time for the grandparents. i. don't
5:33 am
. know. what that doctors don't want to do. at the harvard. they were doing. but when they've had the will it be a partner to holla when you call a quarter one of her to go without. me that the yelling on the walls when they yell and then they don't yell resident and they come out of the town with a little face or that. it's really a book or what you're for that might. try. to. trick her. as
5:34 am
a couple these are due to ego how's the what's in the house. they will see all through the not so actually the ok. the insurance does not cover any of the travel and accommodation costs. illness is one of the most common causes of poverty in china. that it's the way. the dot dot. dot. there's an exaggerator thread now that's higher than that fryer. male. so that there are that they are right that a good way to get. that. dollar an adult male. for someone that. show more visual. aha to.

5:50 am
a former president of the country was speaking a short time ago soni said the message is loud and clear the people of maldives want change peace and justice i would like to call on president i mean to accept the will of the people and begin a smooth transition of power as the constitution so that's the statement from soli former president mohamed nasheed who was jailed in two thousand and fifteen but is now living in exile in sri lanka echoed that cole. they don't not want to see president ya mean but to his old tricks not also print courts. the martial law. no more and i did see it all. the most up as. we will hopefully again the beautiful country let's get more this hour from janae mohamed a janice with the moldings independent he joins me now from la an unexpected result
5:51 am
emerging in this election how would you describe the atmosphere that now. i discard . what is a celebration going on inside. may not position m.b.p.s. convince him to hundreds of people gathered outside but to just be a festive crowd the president elect is also there it now his running mate is there as well and the leadership of the joint opposition as well and they are saying that there will still have that tonight until the elections commission finishes announcing the official permission orders all that's right now from the promotional materials that has been called by the local media are ninety eight percent of the border has the continent that is around four hundred sixty three books books is out of four hundred seventy two and continuing to see. it's all there the
5:52 am
president elect hold on to a strong lead or sixteen percent right. is managing to maintain his lead he has spoken out and he said that he is hoping for a peaceful transition anyone from president abdullah i mean yet. i have been trying to get in touch with the president of his spokes people for the visa and the so why are. received in terms of. from the president is that the president will give a message sometime maybe tonight member tomorrow of mcdowell's i'm not sure in terms of a message from the who will impart to you we had to lead from the parliamentary leader of the ruling party who said that. it is a very not
5:53 am
a loss the p.p.m. you know the ruling party is a party that has capital has the courage to accept the decision of the modern people. what are the immediate steps now and the challenges facing. i think at this moment. in the outside the m.b.p. office that i was talking to a lot of the chants are inveterately are targeted at the president asking him calling on him to. accept there is oats and and concede defeat so far i think. in this for even in this festive atmosphere i think there is a level of uncertainty or what phil what will the president do and i think because it is taking so long for the president to come out and say something. except that he has lost the election it is becoming more uncertain over time we
5:54 am
also have official word from the elections commission host totted announcing results are just about an hour and thirty minutes ago the chief of the elections commission said that what. the things that this is one of the most peaceful elections we've had. in our. courting him here joe thank you very much thank you very much neighborhood for bringing us all the latest from la let's discuss this story some more with a couple us wanny director of the south asia center at the atlantic council thank you very much for speaking to us as you were hearing that almost all of the results some ninety eight percent of the vote has been counted and we see that abraham the opposition candidate continuing to maintain his lead why have we not heard anything from president yet mean. well i think that's
5:55 am
a great question and the longer president mean waits to concede defeat it's not a good sign for him and it's not a good sign for the democracy and or for that matter it's not a good it's not justice to the people of maldives or at large i think he should come out the people of maldives have spoken and he should come out and concede defeat and be gracious in his defeat and that's a lesson but. that's a that's a bill that. is he likely to accept this result. well i mean i think this was a big this was a big deal for shockey what he was hoping and he was aiming was to consolidate power. and with the way that i think prior to the elections the way that he had. i would call it manipulated the institutions. to exercise his control over the institutions of maldives i think it really backfired
5:56 am
