    En el caso colombiano, el gasto en salud como proporción del PIB es superior a la mediana mundial, a la de países de ingreso Medio-Alto y latinoamericanos, aunque resulta inferior respecto a países integrantes de la OCDE (Organización para la Cooperación y el Desarrollo Económico). Además, en el marco de los avances que ha tenido el país frente a la cobertura universal en salud, y dados los nuevos retos planteados especialmente por la Ley Estatutaria de Salud, se mantienen en discusión las implicaciones económicas y fiscales de garantizar un plan integral de salud a toda la población (OECD, 2016) (GES, 2012). De esta manera, en esta Observación se da respuesta a los siguientes interrogantes: ¿cuál es, cómo se ha comportado y cuáles son las principales fuentes de financiación del gasto en salud de Colombia? y ¿En qué medida la salud es o no una prioridad en el país, desde el punto de vista del gasto?
