Based on extensive interviews with world leaders in healthcare and data from international organizations, Commonwealth Fund has compiled a list of countries with the best healthcare in the world.
In 2022 countries that have the best healthcare in the world are:
- The Netherlands
- United Kingdom
The best healthcare in the world will be based on its accessibility, quality, and cost.
While there are many factors that contribute to the quality of healthcare in a given country, one of the most important is how accessible it is. When people can easily access medication, doctors and hospitals that are certified by their governments, as well as treatment for a variety of illnesses, they are more likely to seek out help when needed.
In addition to being able to access medical professionals and treatments, countries also need to consider how affordable their health care is. This can be determined through several different metrics: how much does it cost per person per year? What percentage of a nation’s GDP goes toward health care?
The next 10 years will be defined by the countries that are able to keep up with the rapid changes in medicine and technology. For example, there is a possibility that we could see more genetic testing for cancer in 2022.
