    Abstract:This publication presents estimates of health expenditure in Sri Lanka from 1990-2012. It is the third published release in the current Sri Lanka Health Accounts (SLHA) series, updating the previous publication released in 2011.
    Total health spending in 2012 was Rs. 252.7 billion, equivalent to 3.4% of GDP, and Rs. 12,388 per capita. The government directly financed 43%, while the remaining 56% was financed by private sources and 1% by donor agencies. Central government financing as a share of total public expenditure increased from 55% in 1990 to 68% in 2012, while household spending accounted for 88% of total private sector financing in 2012.
    The report presents expenditure estimates by source of funding, function and provider, as well as on a per-person basis, by province and district, and in comparison with selected other Asia-Pacific territories. These estimates have been developed by IHP experts over many years and are fully compatible with the WHO-endorsed international standard for reporting of health accounts statistics, the OECD’s System of Health Accounts.
