The Top 20 countries with the world’s best personal healthcare systems

Britain and the United States lagged far behind other leading countries in the much anticipated ranking of healthcare quality of 195 countries. America landed at 35th place — the U.K. was not too far ahead at number 30, according to a comprehensive study published in the medical journal The Lancet.

The top country on their list was Andorra, a tiny nation nestled between France and Spain. Andorra has a population of about 85,000.

Iceland came in 2nd place, followed by Switzerland (No. 3), Sweden (No. 4), and Norway (No. 5).

Australia was ranked 6th on the global list of countries assessed for health care availability and quality (HAQ), while Finland landed at 7th place, with Spain, the Netherlands, and Luxembourg rounded off the top 10.

The lowest-ranked nation was the Central African Republic, the landlocked country in the middle of the continent, with Afghanistan, Somalia, Guinea−Bissau, and Chad, rounded off the bottom five.

The study looked at 195 countries and assessed nations for health care quality and access, ranking them 0 to 100.
