Site Spotlight - Health Expenditure Australia 2016-17

A recent report from the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare:
Health expenditure Australia 2016–17
Balance of public hospital funding shifting
In 2016–17, $69 billion was spent on hospitals—a real increase of $2 billion from the previous year.

Funding of public hospitals has shifted between governments in recent years. Australian Government expenditure on public hospitals rose 6.2% in real terms to nearly $22 billion, whereas state and territory government funding for public hospitals increased 0.1% in real terms from the previous year, to $27 billion.

Because of this shift, the share of public hospital funding contributed by the state and territory governments fell from 52.4% to 51.0%, with the Australian Government share increasing from 39.3% to 40.6% between 2015–16 and 2016–17
