Latest OECD figures on health spending show that health spending grew by less than 2% in with provisional estimates pointing to around % growth in OECD spending on health as a share of GDP remained at around % on average inaccording to OECD Health Statisticsreleased on.

Inadequate public expenditure on health (estimated to be 110% of the share of the gross domestic product during –09), and imbalanced resource allocation with much variation between state expenditures on health, restrict capacity to ensure adequate and appropriate physical access to good-quality health services.
