This brochure presents the OECD Work on Health for 2013-2014, including all recent and forthcoming major publications and databases.
This second 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.
