Best Healthcare In The World 2019

Having quality healthcare is an absolute necessity. With a well-developed healthcare system, citizens of a nation are able to prevent and be treated for diseases, illnesses, and physical injury. Without a good healthcare system, people will be unable to afford or receive the treatment they need, which results in a poor quality of life and, ultimately, death. Countries with poor healthcare have poorer overall health and a much shorter lifespan than more developed countries with a stable healthcare system and resources.

What countries have the best healthcare in the world? One of the best ways to determine the nations with the best healthcare is by taking a look at the 2019 Best Countries report from U.S. News & World Report. In this report, the sub-ranking of “Quality of Life” includes the attribute of having a well-developed public health system.

From the latest report, Finland was found to have the best health care system in the world. It is also the 14th best country overall.

Coming in second place in terms of quality healthcare is Norway, which is ranked as the 9th best country based on the data from the 2019 report.

In third place is Sweden, which is ranked as the 6th best country based on the attributes used to score each country listed in the report.

You can also use the results from the Prosperity Index released by the Legatum Institute. This report looks at factors including health infrastructure, basic mental and physical health, and the availability of preventative care. Based on the latest report, the following countries were found to have the best healthcare:
