$32.00 plus tax (Refund Policy)


In 2008, Norway recorded the highest spending per person on health goods and services among European countries at about EUR 4 300 (Figure 4.1.1) ‐ almost twice the average of European Union countries. This was nonetheless far below the health spending per capita in the United States. Switzerland, Luxembourg and Austria were the next highest spending countries in Europe. Most northern and western European countries spent between EUR PPP 2 500 and 3 500 per person, that is, between 10% and 60% more than the EU average. Those countries spending below the EU average are eastern and southern European countries such as Turkey, Romania, Bulgaria, Poland and Hungary.
