This report provides the latest annual overview of the key trends in health expenditure in Australia. It is the latest in the 33 years of the AIHW’s health expenditure series, and examines health expenditure according to who paid (the source of funds) and the types of health goods and services purchased (area of expenditure) between 2005–06 and 2015–16.
Growth in total health expenditure in Australia continued to be relatively low in 2015–16 compared with the 10-year average. However, this was not the case for all sources of funds and it did not result in a reduction in the ratio of health expenditure to gross domestic product (GDP).
