The estimates are sent out to the Ministries of Health for validation prior to publication but users are advised that country data may still differ in terms of definitions, data collection methods, population coverage and estimation methods used This database is the source for the health expenditure tables in the World Health Statistics Report and the WHO Global Health Observatory….”
