How do other countries do it?

The World Health Organization ranked American health care 37th in the world, and in a recent comprehensive, comparative study, the Commonwealth Fund ranked America’s health care system last on the basis of 21 indicative factors.

How’s that possible? Read about seven of those countries and find out.

3. This is an old debate...
