Pakistanis spent $ 7.2 billion on healthcare in 2013 (3.1% of our Gross Domestic Product), representing a per capita expenditure of $ 39.4. The government contribution to this was no more than 31.4% ($ 12.4 per capita). The public allocations to health thus represent a paltry 4.7% of total government expenditure and are just shy of 1% of our GDP.
