The world’s best health care facilities are being ranked.
The World Health Organization (WHO) has released its rankings of health care systems across the globe.
The list is based on data from all countries and covers all areas of health.
A total of 5,000 health facilities are ranked for each of the six areas: Health Care, Emergency and Life-Saving Care, Public Health, Rehabilitation and Education.
The ranking is based primarily on the number of doctors, nurses and hospitals in the system and the quality of the care, said Dr Amitabh Shah, WHO director-general for health.
According to the WHO rankings, the U.S. ranks as the country with the second highest number of healthcare facilities in the top 100, followed by Australia and Germany.
The U.K. and France are the only countries where there is a slight drop in the number or quality of health facilities.
“The ranking shows a growing trend of hospitals becoming more effective and sustainable,” said Dr David McWilliams, chief executive of the health care research organisation Healthgrades.
“We can expect more and more facilities to be able to serve more people in the future.”
