image of Health at a Glance 2015

This new edition of Health at a Glance presents the most recent comparable data on the performance of health systems in OECD countries. Where possible, it also reports data for partner countries (Brazil, China, Colombia, Costa Rica, India, Indonesia, Latvia, Lithuania, Russian Federation and South Africa). Compared with the previous edition, this new edition includes a new set of dashboards of health indicators to summarise in a clear and user-friendly way the relative strengths and weaknesses of OECD countries on different key indicators of health and health system performance, and also a special focus on the pharmaceutical sector. This edition also contains new indicators on health workforce migration and on the quality of health care.

Long-term care expenditure

Long-term care (LTC) expenditure has risen over the past few decades in most OECD countries and is expected to rise further in the coming years, with population ageing leading to more people needing ongoing health and social care, rising incomes leading to higher expectations of quality of life in old age, the supply of informal care potentially shrinking and productivity gains difficult to achieve in such a labour-intensive sector (De La Maisonneuve and Oliveira Martins, 2013).
