Top Ten Health Care Systems

The WHO came up with these ratings in 2000:

1 France
2 Italy
3 San Marino
4 Andorra
5 Malta
6 Singapore
7 Spain
8 Oman
9 Austria
10 Japan

And where was Canada, you ask? 30th, right behind Morocco. I wonder where we are now.

If Italy, with all its mad governmental chaos, can be number 2, what does that say about the way our governments do health?

Not so long ago I read that it's way quicker for a dog to get a hip replacement than a human. Much of my pastoral care work is with people who are waiting for some sort of test or care.

Found it here.
