The chart below shows the total spending on healthcare in 2010 according to data compiled by the World Health Organization (WHO). This chart gives you an idea of how much the top countries in the European region spend annually on healthcare for its citizens, and the rate of growth during the last five years. In Europe, Germany and France spend significantly more per person on healthcare than countries such as the UK, Italy or Spain. However, in all of these countries, the rate of growth in spending has increased nominally over the last five years. With increased pressure to control costs, it is likely that Europe will experience slower rates of growth in healthcare spending over the five years compared to markets in Asia. Many people might be surprised that the Russian Federation, with more than 142,000,000 people spends less on healthcare annually than The Netherlands, with 16,500,000 people. Charts are also available for Worldwide, Asia Pacific, Middle East & Africa, North America, South America.
