Global Public Health Financing 1995 to 2006

$199 / year

This dataset provides estimates on domestically financed government health expenditures in developing countries and development assistance for health (DAH) to governmental and non-governmental recipients from 1995 to 2006.

Complexity

This dataset is a result of the study, Public financing of health in developing countries: a cross-national systematic analysis published in The Lancet in April 2010.

Government spending on health from domestic sources is an important indicator of a government’s commitment to the health of its people, and is essential for the sustainability of health programmes. This study systematically analysed all data sources available for government spending on health in developing countries; describe trends in public financing of health; and test the extent to which they were related to changes in gross domestic product (GDP), government size, HIV prevalence, debt relief, and development assistance for health (DAH) to governmental and non-governmental sectors.

Results of this study showed that in all developing countries, public financing of health in constant US$ from domestic sources increased by nearly 100% (IMF 120%; WHO 88%) from 1995 to 2006. Overall, this increase was the product of rising GDP, slight decreases in the share of GDP spent by government, and increases in the share of government spending on health.
