Healthcare in India

World Bank data for 2010 shows India’s proportion of public expenditure to total spending on health at 29.2% is much lower than the global average of 62.8% and sub-Saharan Africa’s 45.3%
India spent 4.1% of its GDP on health against a global average of 10.4% and OECD’s 12.9%
In effect, India’s public expenditure on health was equivalent to 1.2% against a global average of 6.5% and OECD average of 8.4%
Not only does India spend less on healthcare than most of the world, even what little is spent comes largely from private sources
