Report: The World’s Healthiest Countries
A recent report, published in August of 2012 by the Bloomberg news agency, has ranked Israel as the 6th healthiest country in the world. Using a system of comparison between health score and health risk score in countries with a population of over 1 million, the famous news agency has ranked the accumulated health rating of over 200 countries worldwide.

The report based its findings on parameters such as the quality of the local health system, technological advancements in the field of medicine and availability of care. In addition, life expectancy, smoking averages, alcohol intake, obesity figures and physical activity were looked at to create the final scores.

Japan, Switzerland, Australia, Italy and Singapore were ranked the highest on the list, in that order. Israel received a health grade of 85.97 percent, a total health score of 91.97 percent, and a health risk penalty of only 6 percent.
Israel, despite being a relatively new country with a significantly small number of residents, trumped  superpowers  such as the USA, Great Britain, France, Germany, China, Russia and 181 other countries.

The US was ranked at the 33rd place, with the Congo, Lesotho and Swaziland taking the bottom three slots.
This comes to no surprise to those familiar with the excellent level of health care provided in Israel. The country hosts many international medical conferences and regularly participates in joint ventures with top western hospitals from all around the world.

In addition, Israel boast a high ratio of health care providers to general population and maintains an impressive standard of expertise amongst it physicians.

Israel is also a force to be reckoned with in terms of its technological abilities. It is the source of numerous groundbreaking developments, among which are: intestine’s endoscopy by a camera pill, “Foresee Home” – a home-use system for AMD diagnoses and many others
