Poorly written article. Is this the level of evidence that we want our current and future healthcare to model upon?

You're backing your statements with opinions on newspapers/websites, which is in turn almost always biased opinions to gather readers. Do we honestly think the US and UK have worse healthcare systems than Malaysia?
Mind you the 'basics' in, say an NHS hospital is far beyond the 'basics' of a Malaysian public hospital, where 'brown water and moul...

I was really surprised to see US and UK on this list. Yes, the NHS and Obamacare has its dissidents but I definitely did not think it was bad enough to qualify here.

The description on the UK namely this bit: "nation has an “outstandingly poor” record of preventing ill health and that the NHS struggles to get...

I agree with Kathleen Peralta . I didn't expect NHS to be in such a situation. It is regarded to be based on a strong model and it is really sad to read this. Most of the healthcare systems mentioned in this article is of underdeveloped or developing nation except USA and UK. The overall economic condition of the country affects the allocation of the funds to the healthcare assets. In countries like Syria, th...
