Improving health requires necessarily equitable funding. This study focuses on the evolution of health spending in Tunisia. Developments are observed between the years 2000 and 2015. Comparisons are made between Tunisia, other countries from North Africa and Middle East region (MENA) and France as a country with an efficient health insurance system. The results show that health spending in Tunisia is growing steadily, but State funding remains insufficient, which has affected the quality of health care provision in the public health sector. The financing of health in Tunisia is mainly based on out-of-pocket household expenditure, which obstructs the access to health care.
