Health at a Glance: Asia/Pacific 2016

Measuring Progress towards Universal Health Coverage

This fourth edition of Health at a Glance Asia/Pacific presents a set of key indicators of health status, the determinants of health, health care resources and utilisation, health care expenditure and financing and health care quality across 27 Asia-Pacific countries and economies. Drawing on a wide range of data sources, it builds on the format used in previous editions of Health at a Glance, and gives readers a better understanding of the factors that affect the health of populations and the performance of health systems in these countries and economies.

Each of the indicators is presented in a user-friendly format, consisting of charts illustrating variations across countries and over time, brief descriptive analyses highlighting the major findings conveyed by the data, and a methodological box on the definition of the indicator and any limitations in data comparability. An annex provides additional information on the demographic context in which health systems operate. This edition is a joint OECD, WHO/WPRO and WHO/SEARO publication.

Mortality and global health estimates

Mortality and global health estimates

Age-standardized death rates: Measuring how many people die each year and why they have died is one of the most important means – along with gauging how various diseases and injuries are affecting the living – of assessing the effectiveness of a country’s health system. Having those numbers helps health authorities determine whether they are focusing on the right kinds of public health actions that will reduce the number of preventable deaths and disease. Globally, around 54.5 million people die each year. One in eight of these deaths occurs in children under the age of 5. Most of these preventable deaths in children occur in low- and middle-income countries.
