Bahrain has some of the best healthcare services in the world, according to a new global quality of life index. Numbeo, the world’s largest database of user-generated content about cities and countries, found that only Japan was better in terms of overall quality of the healthcare system, healthcare professionals, equipment, staff, doctors, and level of cost.
Using data collated from online surveys – not official government reports – the site found that Bahrain was 21 places ahead of the UK and 15 ranks higher than its nearest GCC rival Qatar, which was placed 17th in the world in terms of healthcare.
Meanwhile, Kuwait came 42nd – on par with India and Singapore – while Saudi Arabia was 53rd, the UAE 63rd and Oman was not listed. – GULF DAILY NEWS
