10 Countries Without Universal Healthcare WorldAtlas

5 hours ago

1. United States. The United States remains the only country in the developed world without a system of universal healthcare. According to the 2018 U.S. Census, 8.5% of Americans, or 27.5 million people, do not have health insurance.
2. China. The world’s most populous country is coming close to a universal healthcare model but isn’t quite there yet. Publically-funded insurance plans already cover more than 95% of the country’s population.
3. Syria. Syria has been in a state of civil war since 2011. Before the war began, the country was actually making significant progress towards improving healthcare.
4. Yemen. Yemen is the poorest country in the Middle East, and if that isn’t bad enough, the country is now a warzone. More than half of Yemen’s healthcare facilities have shut down due to the country’s ongoing civil war.
5. Afghanistan. Afghanistan has been in a state of war for decades. In 2001, a coalition of military forces led by the U.S. overthrew the Islamist Taliban regime following the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
6. Pakistan. Pakistan is home to more than 220 million people, which makes it the fifth most populous country in the world. The country actually has a pretty extensive healthcare infrastructure, but like most developing countries, Pakistan’s public health system lacks sufficient resources and personnel to deliver quality healthcare.
7. Nigeria. Nigeria is the most populous country in Africa, with more than two hundred million people. Most healthcare in the country is paid for out-of-pocket as there is no national health plan to cover costs.
8. Egypt. About a hundred million people call Egypt home, which means that there is inevitably a demand for healthcare services. The country’s government is working towards having a national health insurance scheme in place by 2025.
9. Iran. Iran has a population of over 83 million. Despite the tough economic sanctions imposed on it, the Islamic Republic has actually been able to develop a pretty modern system compared to other developing countries.
10. South Africa. Post-Apartheid South Africa actually has access to healthcare listed as a fundamental right in the country’s constitution. In practice, however, public services are severely under-resourced and understaffed, and since most of the country’s population is relatively poor, they cannot afford the services that the private sector offers and which are based on one’s ability to pay.
