New data released on Global Health Spending…

A new article published in this month’s The Lancet includes analysis of health spending from a variety of sources including government health spending, private spending and development assistance.

“Despite remarkable health gains, past health financing trends and relationships suggest that many low-income and lower-middle-income countries will not meet internationally set health spending targets and that spending gaps between low-income and high-income countries are unlikely to narrow unless substantive policy interventions occur. Although gains in health system efficiency can be used to make progress, current trends suggest that meaningful increases in health system resources will require concerted action.”
