The WHO Europe Child and Adolescent Health Database (CAHD) provides a set of statistics based on indicators related to the health and well-being of children and adolescents. The statistics were collated from a variety of databases as a joint effort between WHO program divisions and collaborating centres and partners. The database was constructed for the purpose of supporting the Child and Adolescent Health and Development Strategy (2015), providing the relevant information for monitoring progress on child and adolescent health indicators in the 53 member states of the WHO European Region.
Indicator code: E340202.T This indicator shares the definition with the parent indicator \"Public-sector health expenditure as % of total health expenditure, WHO estimates\".
These estimates of the public (or the general governmental expenditure) on health were produced by WHO using multiple information sources and special techniques. It is the sum of outlays on health paid for by taxes, social security contributions and external (without double-counting the governmental transfers to social security and extrabudgetary funds, see the World Health Report 2002 for details) These estimates may somewhat differ from official national statistics reported by countries (see indicator 992703).
