15 Healthiest Countries!

1 comment:

  1. It seems is the only place I could find current facts on the world's healthiest countries. If there are any other sources out there, be sure and let me know.. ok? Thanks!

    According to, to determine their list of the healthiest places to live in the world, they looked at the latest available health and environmental statistics for every nation, from sources such as the World Health Organization, the World Bank and the UN.

    But due to incomplete data, they ranked only the 138 nations with statistics in every measure. That's why you don't see countries such as Monaco, Norway, Malta, Belgium, Luxembourg, New Zealand, Ireland and Andorra--all of which had a shot of cracking the top 15 were they not missing information.

    The statistics they examined included estimated air pollution in world cities; the percentage of a country's population with access to improved drinking water and sanitation; infant mortality rates; the rate of prevalence of tuberculosis; the density of physicians--generalists and specialists--per 1,000 people; undernourishment rates; and healthy life expectancies for men.

    I made the widget above showing the 15 countries!
