Summary 

Research by the Global Burden of Disease Health Financing Collaborator Network produced forecasted health spending estimates for 2015-2040 for 184 countries. The estimates cover total health spending, and health spending disaggregated by source into government spending, out-of-pocket, prepaid private, and development assistance for health. GDP and all-sector government spending were extracted for 1980–2015 and used with retrospective health spending estimates for 1995-2014 to forecast GDP, all-sector government spending, and health spending through 2040. Results of the study were published in The Lancet in April 2017 in "Future and potential spending on health 2015–40: government, prepaid private, out-of-pocket, and donor financing in 184 countries."
