Development of health expenditure
10 Years of Civil Governance - Part 13
Concluding remarks on the health topic from the Perspective Institute:
“According to OECD data, per capita health expenditures decreased in real terms only in Hungary between 2003 and 2009, while they increased in Hungary between 2010 and 2016. Health expenditure alone increased in proportion to GDP in 2016 - it should be added that in addition to dynamically growing national income, but also in the context of dealing with the emergency caused by the coronavirus, this ratio will also increase significantly. ”
Emphasizing once again:
Left-liberals who are constantly “educating health care” have also reduced health spending in real terms under their rule (1), the only one among OECD countries (2). During the rule of Fidesz, expenditures started to increase, we got off the shame.
OECD statistics also include household and government expenditure. We were bold and simply did the calculation with public spending.
We examined in detail how the real value of per capita public health expenditure changed on an annual basis. That is, we looked at the percentage increase / decrease in expenditure per year (3) and adjusted it for inflation (4). Public health expenditure in 2002 was determined on the basis of the 2003 change (5).
The figure shows that left-liberal governance only increased public health spending in real terms in 2005 and 2006 (6.9%, 1.3%). In 2003, 2004, 2007, 2008, 2009, by 3.5%, 1.1%, 11.6%, 1.7%, respectively, 5, Expenditure decreased by 5% in real terms. Overall, the real value of public health spending fell by 14.7%.
During the rule of Fidesz, spending stagnated roughly in 2010 and 2011 (0.3%, -0.1%), while in 2012 it decreased by 5.8%. From 2013 to 2018, spending in real terms increased by 2.4%, 6.5%, 5.7%, 5.4%, 3.6%, and 6%, respectively. Overall, the real value of public health spending increased by 25.9% under Fidesz.
That is, in the days of left-liberal governments, public spending beautified only the outrageously rough withdrawal of public health funds. And are they still in health care?
