NPR: Health Care: An International Comparison

In July 2008 NPR presented a great series of programs called, "Taking The Measure Of Health Care In America" - worth listening to if you missed it then. As part of this program, they prepared An International Comparison:

"Countries with governments and economies similar to the United States have come up with a variety of methods to make sure that all of their citizens receive health care. While residents in Europe and Japan may pay higher insurance premiums or taxes than Americans, in the end, when all costs are added up, Americans spend more money on health care per person — with fewer people covered."
