Life expectancy is the average number of years a newborn infant would live if prevailing patterns of mortality at the time of its birth were to stay the same throughout its life. Total health expenditure is the sum of public and private health expenditures. It covers the provision of health services (preventive and curative), family planning, nutrition, and emergency aid but does not include provision of water or sanitation.
