Medical Research Funding Level by Country: World Psoriasis Day Challenge

Right now, the United States leads the world in annual investments in biomedical research funding. American taxpayers fund more than $30 billion annually in biomedical research, in a nation of 300 million people. That’s $100 given to research each year for every man, woman and child living in the United States.

What do other countries invest in life-saving medical research? Here are some figures. For each, we take the total amount spent each year in health-related medical research, and divide that by the country’s population, to come up with an amount invested for each person in the country. That allows us fairly to compare large countries with small countries.

How much does YOUR country invest annually in laying the groundwork for tomorrow’s treatments and cures?

United States of America ……. $100 / 76 Euro (EUR) per citizen

United Kingdom ……………….. $30 / 23 Euro per citizen

Canada ……………………………. $30 / 23 Euro per citizen

France …………………………….. $15 / 12 Euro per citizen

South Korea ……………………… $13 / 10 Euro per citizen

Germany ………………………….. $11 / 8 Euro per citizen

Japan ……………………………….. $9 / 7 Euro per citizen

Russia ……………………………… $2 / 1.5 Euro per citizen
