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.

Mortality from transport accidents

Injuries from transport accidents – most of which are due to road traffic – are a major public health problem in OECD countries, causing the premature deaths of more than 100 000 people in 2013 (more than 1% of all deaths). Almost three-quarters of these deaths occurred among men. In addition, more than 5 million people were injured in road accidents. The direct and indirect financial costs of transport accidents are substantial, with estimates ranging from 1 to 3% of GDP annually (OECD/ITF, 2015).
