  1. It looks like you are plotting health expenditure as a percentage of GDP against life expectancy at birth? Life expectancy can obviously be measured at different ages. Improvements in life expectancy at later ages, say age 65, are much slower than improvements at younger ages, or birth. Yet expenditure tends to be heavily skewed towards advanced ages. So, it would be interesting to plot health expenditures against life expectancy improvements at older ages. I suspect the correlation would be weaker.
