Let’s proceed to the list of the most medically advanced countries in the world in 2018. Insider Monkey has recently published an interesting article about it. Countries around the world pay big money for finding cures for the world’s most threatening diseases. In an exceeding span of 30 years, having an HIV went from a definite death sentence to a manageable condition. Moreover, most of the cancer varieties are treatable these days, especially if caught early. However, despite all the funds spent on advancing drugs, typically the progress is painfully slow. If we check out the rankings of top 10 countries with the best healthcare in 2017 in best healthcare in the world 2017 reports, Japan and China, for example, accounted for 13.8 % and 3.1 % of the world’s total medical research spending. After all, these countries saw a surge in investment from the private sector.
Now without a further ado let’s see what Insider Monkey has investigated for us. We have picked three of the most medically advanced countries in the world in 2018 from their list.
The first one is Canada. The country’s national healthcare system is known as Medicare. It’s publicly-funded, and it provides universal healthcare to all Canadian citizens. It’s no wonder this country ended up on our list considering recent reports on medical breakthroughs regarding the use of marijuana as a medicine. Moreover, have you heard about Toronto Health Innovation Week “where health means business”? It’s probably the largest health investor gathering in the country, where hospitals and research institutes are given an opportunity to bring their (medical) ideas to life. The second country should be Norway. When it comes to the medical care of its citizens, you should know that this country is covering more than 80% of total healthcare costs with its healthcare system. Together with Switzerland and the U.S., it is spending more of its GDP on healthcare system than other countries in the world. Now let’s see Israel. Israel has the most advanced medical system in the Middle East. The country ranks seventh on our list of most medically advanced countries in the world in 2018. It also ranks 6th on the highest life expectancy list.
