Quality of healthcare in Spain
Most people are not aware that in 2017 Spain ranked eighth in the world for quality of healthcare. The Healthcare Access and Quality Index (HAQ), studied the quality of healthcare across 195 countries, measuring mortality rates from causes that should not be fatal in the presence of effective medical care.
The study analysed death rates from 32 such diseases and conditions over the period 1990 to 2015.
Spain scored 90 points out of a maximum 100, placing it eighth in the world rankings, above the healthcare systems of Italy (89), France (88), Greece (87), Germany (86), the UK (85) and Portugal (85). From this analysis the UK were placed 30th and the US 35th.
