This fourth edition of Health at a Glance Asia/Pacific presents a set of key indicators
of health status, the determinants of health, health care resources and utilisation,
health care expenditure and financing and health care quality across 27 Asia-Pacific
countries and economies. Drawing on a wide range of data sources, it builds on the
format used in previous editions of Health at a Glance, and gives readers a better
understanding of the factors that affect the health of populations and the performance
of health systems in these countries and economies.
Each of the indicators is presented in a user-friendly format, consisting of charts illustrating variations across countries and over time, brief descriptive analyses highlighting the major findings conveyed by the data, and a methodological box on the definition of the indicator and any limitations in data comparability. An annex provides additional information on the demographic context in which health systems operate.
This edition is a joint OECD, WHO/WPRO and WHO/SEARO publication.
