Global Retrospective Health Spending 1995 to 2014

$447.50 / year

This dataset provides retrospective national health spending estimates for 184 countries from 1995-2014. Data is taken from the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) and the Global Health Data Exchange.

Complexity

The dataset estimates cover total health spending, and health spending disaggregated by the source into government spending, out-of-pocket, prepaid private, and development assistance for health. National health spending by source, including development assistance for health, was estimated based on a diverse set of data, including program reports, budget data, national estimates, and 964 National Health Accounts. The resulting estimates were used to help produce forecasted health spending estimates for 2015-2040.

Spending estimates were extracted in national currency units and divided by gross domestic product (GDP), also reported in national currency units and reported by WHO. This fraction was multiplied by GDP per capita reported in inflation-adjusted 2015 PPP $.

Results of the study were published in The Lancet in April 2017 in “Evolution and patterns of global health financing 1995–2014: development assistance for health, and government, prepaid private, and out-of-pocket health spending in 184 countries.”
