Health spending slowed markedly or fell in many OECD countries recently after years of continuous growth, according to OECD Health Data 2012. As a result of the global economic crisis which began in 2008, a zero rate of growth in health expenditure was recorded on average in 2010, and preliminary estimates for 2011 suggest that low or negative growth in health spending continued in many of the countries for which data are available. Il ressort de l’édition 2012 de la Base de données de l’OCDE sur la santé qu’après des années de progression constante, récemment les dépenses de santé se sont nettement ralenties, voire ont reculé, dans de nombreux pays de l'OCDE. Suite à la crise économique mondiale qui a commencé en 2008, un taux de progression nul des dépenses de santé a été enregistré en moyenne en 2010, et les premières estimations pour 2011 semblent indiquer une progression faible et même négative dans nombre des pays pour lesquels on dispose de données.
