A few weeks ago one of our interns was trawling through the depths of the internet when they came across this fascinating comparison of how much different countries spend on healthcare. Now if you haven’t clicked the link, don’t worry, we’ll tell you what we consider the most interesting factoid from the entire report, are you ready? Here it is: An average North Korean spends $1 a year on health care.
That’s right, the price of a single coffee in downtown Toronto you can get 3 years heath care in the workers paradise, in comparison the average Canadian spends $4380 per year on health care (around 1347 coffee’s). This mind blowing fact sent our curiosity ablaze; we started to wonder how Canada measured up against the world in terms of health. Dispatching our interns again to the depths of the internet they returned with a bounty of stats contrasting Canada to the rest of the word, these are presented below as a feast for the eyes and the well-I-never-knew-that gland.
