Description

The National Health and Hospitals Reform Commission commissioned the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare to undertake projections of Australian health care expenditure using the Institute's disease expenditure projection model. The report projects health and residential aged care expenditure for the period 2003 to 2033. Total expenditure on health and residential aged care is projected to increase from 9.3% of GDP in 2002-03 to 12.4% of GDP in 2032-33. The report provides details of the five components of the projection model, presents projections for the 20 disease groups and estimates change in funding by the Australian Government, State and Territory governments and the private sector.
