On this page you’ll find links to overviews of the national health systems for several nations. These include Beveridge-model systems (Sweden, UK); Bismarck-model systems (Germany, Japan); hybrid “Bev-Marck” systems (Austria, Costa Rica); and national health insurance model systems (Canada, South Korea).
These overviews include sections on that nation’s population health coverage, health system expenditures, financing, costs to consumers, outcomes, and much more.
Health Systems Facts is a project of the Real Reporting Foundation. We provide reliable statistics and other data from authoritative sources regarding health systems in the US and several other nations.
