DM

A new report has ranked Canada’s health system second last, ahead of the United States, among high-income countries. The report, released on Wednesday by the Commonwealth Fund, ranked 11 high-income countries on key health-system measures, including equity, access to care, affordability, health-care outcomes, and administrative efficiency. The report found that the top-performing health systems overall are in Norway, the Netherlands, and Australia, while Switzerland, Canada and the U.S. were the countries with the worst health-care systems, respectively. However, the report noted that the U.S. performance falls “far below” Switzerland and Canada’s, despite these countries being ranked directly above it.
