Citizen’s expenditures on healthcare have reduced from 73.4% to 43.5% in 2021 compared to 2012, - according to the Ministry of Health.

As for the government, maintaining and further developing a quality and universally accessible healthcare system based on the principle of social justice is one of the top priorities of the country.

"As of today, universal health care program covers 94.7% of the population. Public expenditures on health care have increased almost fivefold (2012 - GEL 450 million, 2022 - GEL 2 billion 541 million). The increase in state spending on healthcare and the efficient planning of services have successfully reduced the existing financial barriers in terms of accessibility and increased the use of services.

Citizens expenditures have been reduced from 73.4% to 43.5% in 2021 compared to 2012,” the government statement reads.
