Perhaps unsurprisingly, Luxembourg, the home of EU chief Jean Claude Juncker, ranks as the healthiest nation on the planet, according to the Prosperity Index’s health sub-index by Legatum Institute. Its population is 582,972, and the average life expectancy is 82.

In second place came Singapore, followed by Switzerland, Japan, and Austria. The United Kingdom, Iceland, Denmark, Israel, Malta, Canada and the United Arab Emirates all feature in the top 25.

Health is measured by 3 key components: a country’s basic mental and physical health, health infrastructure, and the availability of preventative care.

All of the top countries on the list have one thing in common: Universal Healthcare.
