WHO says who has the most responsive health care? We do, says WHO!
July 10, 2009
It has been widely reported that in a 2000 World Health Organization (WHO) report that the United State ranked 37th in the world in our health care system, behind countries such as Columbia, Greece & Chile. But it turns out that this isn’t so.
The truth is that the WHO survey ranked the United States Number 1 in the world in the Responsiveness of our healthcare system, and we ranked 15 in “Overall Level of Health” (Source: http://www.who.int/whr/2000/en/whr00_annex_en.pdf, pg 196) and a 1% change would place us in the top 5 in overall health in the world.
Much more here.
