What is the weight of health expenditures and consumption in France?

The French health accounts provide a fairly accurate picture of health consumption and expenditure (see definition of health).

The following diagram shows that current expenditure on health remains rather stable in relation to the total budget between 2006 and 2013, remaining between 10.75% of GDP and 11.7% of GDP, i.e. at a maximum of one point difference.

Similarly, the consumption of medical care and goods is stable between 2006 and 2013, relative to total consumption, remaining between the limits of 8.2% of GDP and 8.8% of GDP.

However, it is possible to observe, for both consumption and expenditure, a slight increase concomitant with the transition between the years 2008 and 2009, increasing respectively by about 0.5 points for consumption and 0.7 points for health, which in terms of GDP represents significant amounts of money.
