Global Health Expenditure Database


We are pleased to release the new health expenditure estimates from 2000 to 2015 for further consultation and feedback. The database includes more than 190 WHO Member States in line with the new system of health accounts (SHA 2011). This has been an intensive exercise involving large numbers of people and working closely with country counterparts for more than a year. We appreciate feedback and comments to further improve the data.

To mark Universal Coverage Day 2017, WHO has published a report that is based on this new data. You can download “New Perspectives on Global Health Spending for Universal Health Coverage” from the WHO website:

You will also find there a technical brief on the new data and indicators as well as other reference material.
