Health Expenditures in Latin America
Gnanaraj Chellaraj Ramesh Govindaraj Christopher J. L. Murray
Price: $ 22

World Bank Technical Paper No. 274.

The preparation of the World Bank's World Development Report 1993: Investing in Health (WDR) included an effort to assemble internationally comparable statistics on a broad range of health and health system indicators. Data had to be compiled from existing sources while analytical efforts were made to improve the quality and comparability of the data.

This paper presents an expanded and updated version of the WDR estimates of 1990 health expenditures for the countries of Latin America and the Caribbean. Whereas the population cut-off for inclusion in the WDR was 3 million, these tables include almost all countries in the region. This update of the expenditures results in a substantial upward revision in the estimated percentage of GNP spent on health in the region in 1990 from 4 to 6%.
