Abstract [en]

Encouraged by the philosophy of Hans Rosling, the current study has tried to visualize development and health perspectives of the bottom 20 and top 20 countries ranked by health access quality (HAQ) index based on Socio-demographic Index (SDI), during last two and half decades (1990-2015). Also, the study has included BRICS countries (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa) and the USA. The study has used secondary data from UNDP, WHO, World Bank and Global Burden of Disease and risk factor studies. Healthcare, health systems and development scenario of bottom 20 and top 20 countries ranked by HAQ index 2015 under SDI quartiles and BRICS countries and USA are presented in three different tables. It is evident that HAQ based on SDI quartiles reflects the better development and health outcomes. Instead of only 46 countries, more countries should be included and more health outcomes could be included in future studies.

Abstract [sv]

Denna studie är inspirerad av Hans Roslings filosofi och försöker visualisera utvecklings- och hälsoperspektivet för de tjugo länder som för de senaste tjugofem åren (1990-2015) rankats högst respektive lägst utefter tillgången på hälsokvalitet (HAQ-index) baserat på ett sociodemografiskt index (SDI). Studien inkluderar BRICS-länderna (Brasilien, Ryssland, Indien, Kina och Sydafrika) och USA. Studien har använt sekundära data från UNDP (FNs utvecklingsprogram), WHO (Världshälsoorganisationen), Världsbanken, Global Burden of Disease Study och studier av riskfaktorer. I tre olika tabeller presenteras hälso- och sjukvård, hälso- och sjukvårdssystem och utvecklingsscenarier i de tjugo högst respektive de tjugo lägst rankade länderna i 2015 års HAQ-index under SDI-kvartiler samt BRICS-länder och USA. Det är uppenbart att HAQ baserat på SDI-kvartiler uppvisar bättre utvecklings-och hälsoutfall. Istället för endast omfatta 46 länder borde framtida studier inkludera fler länder och fler hälsoutfall.
