Share of GDP on health expenditure in Italy from 2006 to 2018

by Statista Research Department, last edited Jul 2, 2019
Italy: share of GDP on health expenditure 2006-2018 Over the period from 2006 to 2018, the share of GDP spent on health in Italy fluctuated between 8.2 percent and nine percent. More specifically, it was steady at nine percent between 2012 and 2015, before gradually decreasing. In 2018, 8.8 percent of the gross domestic product was allocated for health services and products.  
 European framework

The Italian share was slightly below the European average, which was equal to nine percent in 2017. However, some of the major European economies such as France and Germany, addressed a much higher share of the GDP to healthcare. As a matter of fact, during the year considered, France spent 11.5 percent of the GDP on health, whereas in Germany health expenditure accounted for 11.3 percent of the GDP.

Private healthcare spending

In the last few years, conversely with the decrease of public healthcare resources, the private spending on health increased. The private health expenditure peaked in 2017 at 39.7 billion euros . Specialist examinations and dental checks were the most burdening headings for Italians in terms of private healthcare costs.
