Croatian healthcare ranks 30th in the world, according to a new survey carried out by the specialised publication The Lancet.
In the 195 countries involved in the survey Croatia finished in a respectable 30th position. The Lancet looked at several factors to produce their “Healthcare Access and Quality Index.” The highest grade was 100 and the lowest 0, and Croatia had a score of 87.
The best healthcare in the world, according to the survey, is in Iceland, which scored 97 points, followed by Norway, the Netherlands and Luxembourg.
In fact, Croatia was only one place below the USA, and at the bottom of the list were Somalia and South Africa with only 19 points on the index. As far as Croatia’s neighbours are concerned Slovenia was ranked in 21st spot, Montenegro in 42nd, Serbia in 50th and Bosnia and Herzegovina in 62nd place.
