World Health Organization’s Ranking of the World’s Health

index

World Health Organization: W.H.O, Numbers

Was in a Skype chat with 5 people from different continents last night late on, we got onto the subject of ‘Global Healthcare’ When I suggested one Country is 37th, Worst in G8 and G20, it did not go down well and I was almost blamed for all the below statistics. I know many American’s have a stable healthcare and sadly the rich in any Country that has to pay for ALL OR ANY Healthcare will not notice just how bad their Health System is because it’s all they know. I know several people from different Countries who are tired of having no or too expensive Healthcare. Here in my culture, NO MATTER the issue, it’s all free, we don’t pay a penny for Healthcare and we don’t pay extra tax to pay as any other Country might for this human right, for me free Healthcare is a human right. Sadly when we sell Healthcare to corporation’s money has to be made. Scotland got Lucky as our NHS is free, sadly for our English brothers and sisters they pay a small fee for prescriptions, in some homes these £6 per prescribed items can have a bad impact on a houses fiscal ability. Just an interesting insight to global greed here and I hope the people at the top of the list know how lucky they are. Scotland ALWAYS gets lumped into the UK graphs but when we see the research it is amazing what tiny Countries like Scotland, Sweden and all over Northern Europe can do. Again, we pay no extra tax for our Healthcare, we demand it’s free and Politics works for us. Many in Scotland (I am just making a valid point) should try be ill in another Country and realise that a half hour wait at A&E (Accident and Emergency) is not to be moaned about
