This brief was written in collaboration with a team from the Indian Institute of Technology, Guwahati, under Task Force 1 of T20: Macroeconomics, Trade, and Livelihoods: Policy Coherence and International Coordination.

The policy brief explores the relationship between fiscal space and investment in the health sector. The brief also looks at the institutional determinants of fiscal space in the G20 countries during 2005-2021 and establishes that country-specific institutions determine the evolution of the budgetary space.
