5 Countries That Spend The Most On Their Own People

5. Solomon Islands – 51.2% of GDP

Located in the South Pacific, the Solomon Islands consists of more than 900 islands and 70 language groups. With a Human Development Index of just 0.51, the Solomon Islands ranks 142nd out of 187 countries. This low level of development (based on health, education and income) is of a great concern to the nation’s government. Although just 8.25% of GDP is spent on social protection, the government (supported by the World Bank and the World Health Organisation), is currently spending 25.5% of GDP on healthcare and social improvements for its citizens.
