Global health price tag could be $371 billion a year by 2030, WHO says

Meeting life-saving global health targets by 2030 could require investments by donors and national governments of up to $58 per person per year, or $371 billion annually, the World Health Organization (WHO) said on Monday.

In a best case scenario of increasing investment to meet the goals, some 97 million premature deaths could be prevented between now and 2030, and up to 8.4 years of life expectancy could be added in some countries, the WHO said in report.

While most countries can afford the funds needed, the poorest nations will need donor help, it added.
