With reference to the practice of the new rural cooperative medical service in Tianjin's Dagang District, this essay analyses, from the gender angle, the gender equality issue involved in the designing and implementing of this new medical service in China. While describing the favorable effects on the establishment of the new medical service on rural women’s health, this essay also points out the possible unfavorable effects on it caused by the gender blind spots arising in the implementation of the new medical service. The essay winds up with the suggestion that gender sensitivity be enhanced in the course of implementation of the new rural cooperative medical service, that the government adopt positive measures to enable the disadvantaged among country women to reap equal benefits out of the family-based new rural cooperative medical service.
