Ever wondered just how healthy Australia is as a nation? Well, a new list of the world’s healthiest and unhealthiest countries has been unveiled.
According to a 2018 report by the Legatum Institute, Singapore has been named the healthiest country in the world out of 149 countries.
However, Australia, the U.K. and the U.S. didn’t make it in the top ten! Find out where they ranked below…
Healthiest nations in the world in 2018 have been revealed
The report was judged on the healthcare system of the country, obesity rates and levels of disease as well as other things.
Australia appeared 12th on the chart, followed by New Zealand in 17th place, Canada in 21st, the U.K. in 26th and the U.S. in 35th.
Of the worst performing countries, Central African Republic was deemed the least unhealthy, followed by Chad, Guinea and Madagascar.
“The very good news is that we see prosperity continuing to rise in the world, both over the last year and consistently over the last 11 years,” says Baroness Philippa Stroud, CEO of the Legatum Institute.
“The news is not all good, however. The gap between the highest and lowest prosperity scores is the largest since we began measuring it in 2007, having grown steadily since 2013, when the highest and lowest scores were the closest together.”
