Government health expenditure as % current health expenditure

What does it mean ?

This is the share of overall current health expenditure that is spent by government, excluding services that are funded by external grants, even when they flow through government.

Why does it matter ?

This represents governments’ contribution to funding health care relative to private and external sources. Domestic government funding is the main, sustainable source for achieving UHC. It has direct impact on the availability of services and provides financial protection against catastrophic health expenditure. Its should increase over time.

How is it collected ?

The data available from the WHO Global Health Expenditure database are reported using the framework of System of Health Accounts 2011 (SHA2011). The new classifications more accurately capture health financing reforms taking place among UN member states.

More about indicator, sources and calculations

More about indicator and sources

The numerator for this particular indicator is calculated as the sum of domestic health revenue (as internal transfers and grants, transfers, subsidies to voluntary health insurance beneficiaries, NPISH or enterprise financing schemes as well as compulsory prepayment and social health insurance contributions). The denominator is current health expenditure, referring to all health care goods and services used or consumed during a year. In countries where the fiscal year begins in July, expenditure data have been allocated to the later calendar year (for example, 2011 data will cover the fiscal year 2010–11). For health expenditure ratios, values smaller than 0.05% are shown as zero.

More information on calculations

Further details of SHA2011 application in individual countries can be seen in the country footnotes and the metadata on the WHO Global Health Expenditure Database. To calculate many of the indicators, macro-economic and demographic estimates from other organisations, such as the World Bank, IMF and United Nations Population Division were also used.
