The World Health Organization (WHO), produced a study ranking health care by country. Can you guess where the US ranks?
In overall medical care, the US ranks # 37, just under Costa Rica and just above Slovenia. (France is number one)
They also ranked the total health expenditure as a per centage of each country’s GDP. The USA ranks 2nd. Only the Marshall Islands spends more on health care than Americans.
And when it comes to how many years of a person’s life expectancy will be healthy ones, the USA is 24th.
Conclusion – While we spend more on health care than almost every other country in the world, we are not receiving the kind of care that they get in the 36 countries that rank ahead of us.
And in 25 other countries, people live healthier lives.
Is it any wonder that over half a million people leave the US each year to seek medical treatment outside the country?
