Conference paper


In the 30 years from 1950 to 1980 the health care systems of Western Europe and North America passed through a remarkable process of expansion. In 1950 the average outlay on health care represented around 3% of the gross national product. Today the equivalent figure is of the order of 8%. This represents more than a sixfold increase in health spending in real terms. Those countries that have enjoyed the greatest economic growth in the last 3 decades have tended to divert the largest amounts of “new money”, in both absolute and relative terms, into their health sectors.
