[Correspondence] Aggregate health spending

The Article on disaggregated data on health spending by the Global Burden of Disease Health Financing Collaborator Network (May 20, p 1981)1 offers great insight into the patterns of spending by countries. Spending is presented per capita in the Article; however, global totals present a more vivid picture of global health finances. By multiplying per capita spending by estimates of population in each country,2 we were able to calculate that total global spending on health was US$8982 billion in 2014.
