"In North America, Canada rates as the country with the fairest mechanism for health system finance ranked at 17-19, while the United States is at 54-55. Cuba is the highest among Latin American and Caribbean nations at 23-25." (see below link to this quote)


OP comments:
Also, these numbers have been know to be off due to the WHO's rating system, For instance, the GDP numbers are much higher for the US and Canada's overall rating is higher for satisfactory care. The Fraser Institute in Canada (A RW "think" tank") was responsible for some inaccurate data in regards to administration costs. S.L.
