THE STATE OF HEALTH in the WHO African Region: An analysis of the status of health, health services and health systems in the context of the Sustainable Development Goals

A complex picture of the African Region emerges from the ›ndings of this analysis. Looking at the level of
funding available for countries to produce the results observed (using the €‡ per capita THE in USµ PPP),
one sees a mixed situation: only nine countries in the Region are spending above USµ ‡ per capita (all, with
the exception of Eswatini, are upper middle or high-income countries), and half the countries (š) have a total
health expenditure of less than USµ €š per capita.
