The chart below shows the total global spending on healthcare in 2010 according to data compiled by the World Health Organization (WHO). This chart gives you an idea of how much every continent spends on healthcare for its citizens, and the rate of growth during the last five years. As you can see, total spending on healthcare has little to do with population, and more to do with how much is spent per person. The United States, which accounts for 40% of global health spending, dramatically skews the global results however. Worldwide, per capita spending on healthcare is roughly USD$1,000 per person, but drops to less than USD$600 per person when the United States is removed from the calculations. Charts are also available for Asia Pacific, Europe, Middle East & Africa, North America, South America.
