Andalusia increases health spending per inhabitant by 45%.

The Ministry of Health and Consumer Affairs of Andalusia has seen its budget increase by a total of 4,402 million euros in five years.

The Government of the Government of Andalusia will allocate in the 2024 Budgets a total of 14,276 million euros for the Ministry of Health and Consumer Affairs, which represents 3% more compared to 2023 and 45% compared to 2018. Thus, the Accounts They reflect an increase in relation to five years ago of 4,402 million for Andalusian public health.

In this sense, it is worth noting that the 2024 Budget project contemplates a per capita expenditure on health of 1,695.96 euros. This means 4.11% more than in 2023 (1,629 euros) and 45.08% more than in 2018 (1,169 euros). “We are talking about a record figure in Andalusia that reflects the increasing commitment of the current Junta Government to public health. Almost 527 euros more per inhabitant since 2018,” they point out.

This increase in spending per inhabitant also implies that Andalusia leaves the last place in spending per inhabitant on health, as it was in 2018 according to data from the Ministry of Health of the Government of Spain as of 2023, to climb four places to the 13th position, leaving behind autonomous communities such as Madrid, Catalonia, Murcia and the Valencian Community.

“We were starting from a very difficult situation. The cuts carried out by the previous Andalusian Administration made it difficult to climb the table, given that the rest of the autonomous communities have also continued to increase their budgets. However, the effort and commitment of this Government to public health has made it possible to get out of that last position and move forward, which is what Andalusians want, for health and, in general, Andalusia to advance,” they highlight.

Improvement of health infrastructure in Primary Care

On the other hand, the Andalusian Government in the 2024 Accounts will continue to improve health infrastructure and, specifically, Primary Care. In this way, the Budgets include a total of 77.34 million euros for new health centers and local clinics, as well as for renovations and expansions of some of the existing ones.

Thus, next year’s Accounts contemplate tenders for projects or works; start and progress of works, Emergency points and rehabilitations or expansions in 55 health centers or local clinics, whose total investment amounts to 225.38 million euros. “In 2019, when we came to the Government of the Junta de Andalucía, we found many obsolete infrastructures. Some are decades late in implementing reforms, in addition to a multitude of projects promised but not carried out. The current Government is serious and committed to the health of Andalusians, who deserve health care in modern health centers and clinics that are at the forefront and humanized,” they conclude.
