Health expenditure; providers and functions for international comparisons


This table contains information on expenditure and financing in current prices on the health care used by residents in the Netherlands in one year. All activities within the area of health care are included, irrespective of whether they are performed within or outside the health care sector. These figures are based on the definition of the System of Health Accounts as used by EUROSTAT, the OECD and the WHO.
The figures are derived from the Dutch statistics on health and social care, which cover a broader range of activities (including e.g. child day care, welfare, and social services). Exports are also included. In this table it can be found in the function M1(HC)+ : Other goods, services + exports.

This table also shows how the total figure in accordance with the System of Health Accounts is calculated from the total figure on health and social care:

Total figure on health and social care
-/- health-related activities
-/- other goods, services and exports (including welfare and children's day care, function M1(HC)+)
= Total current expenditure on health

Data available from: 1998

Status of the figures:
The figures for 2018 are provisional; the figures for 2016-2017 are revised provisional; the figures for the other years are final.

Changes as of 21 June 2019:
The figures for 2018 have been added, the figures for 2015-2017 have been updated. The function out-patient curative care has been broken down into more categories, covering now general, specialist, dental and other out-patient curative care.

When will new figures be published?
In the second quarter of 2020 the 2016-2018 data will be updated and provisional figures on 2019 will be published.
