What a Group to be In

Per the Health at a Glance Chart Set, Powerpoint, available here:

All OECD countries have achieved universal or near-universal health care coverage, except Turkey, Mexico and the United States

And it’s even more impressive when you go to Slide 36 (whose header is quoted above) and realise that the Public Coverage in those three states is:

    Mexico: 82.5
    Turkey: 67.2
    United States: 27.4

Any room to bend the curve? Certainly looks as if there might be:

Well, at least Turkey and Mexico can feel good about themselves. Happy Xmas!
