Which countries are best for expatriate healthcare?


The HSBC 2011 Expat Explorer Survey of 3385 UK expats living in more than 100 countries, gave enough date to rank 31 countries.


Belgium came top for expat healthcare, followed by Germany and France. The rankings are based on affordability, access and quality of care. There is a clear divide between the countries with the best health systems and those with the strongest financial opportunities for expats. Countries in the Middle East and Asia ranked highly for income and disposable income, as well as work-related criteria, but they did poorly when it came to healthcare.Saudi Arabia and Egypt placed 1st and 2nd in terms of income. But for healthcare they placed 20th and 21st, respectively.
