France Health Expenditure in Comparison to other Leading Economies


International Comparison of Health Expenditure as a Share of GDP

France spends 11.6% of its GDP on health.

This is behind the USA (17.1%) but ahead of Germany (11.2%), Japan (10.2%), Denmark (11.2%), and the united Kingdom (8.8%).

The growth in healthcare spending as a share of GDP that occurred in 2009 across all of these countries can be attributed chiefly to the effects of the economic crisis. These values have since stabilized overall.
