Universal healthcare is something provided by the state in many countries around the world. It is defined as healthcare that is free at the point of service to citizens meaning patients do not have to pay to see a doctor or visit a hospital for essential care. What is included within state healthcare systems varies from country to country.

Which Countries Provide Universal Healthcare?

Almost all of the so-called developed world offer universal healthcare Wholesale Jerseys Free Shipping , with the United States being the only exception. In America, the US’s Northern neighbour Canada does as do South American and Central American countries such as Venezuela, Costa Rica, Chile, Argentina and Cuba. The majority of American countries Wholesale Jerseys From China , however, do not. Very few African countries have universal healthcare systems, with Tunisia and Botswana the only two exceptions. This is likely due to many of these being poor countries and it therefore not being affordable or not being a priority for the state. Within Asia and Australasia Australia and New Zealand both have such healthcare systems but the majority of Asian countries do not. Mongolia, Japan, South Korea and Thailand do though Wholesale Jerseys China , as do the Middle Eastern nations of the United Arab Emirates and Oman. Europe is where national health services originated and is offered to citizens in most European countries, including all of Western Europe. Poland, Lithuania and Russia are amongst the few exceptions in Eastern Europe.

The Origination of Universal Healthcare

Germany has the world’s oldest healthcare system, which dates back to the late nineteenth century. The United Kingdom followed in 1911. At the time only employed citizens and their families, and those who had contributed financially for five years or more Wholesale Jerseys , were offered free healthcare. The National Health Service, or NHS, was established in 1948 when all citizens were included. During these early post-war years the number of nations offering universal healthcare increase as the Declaration of Human Rights was established. Only a few countries didn’t sign the agreement, which included rights to healthcare and a quality standard of living for citizens, while only two countries Wholesale Washington Nationals Jerseys , the United States and South Africa, signed it but did not ratify it.

How is Universal Healthcare Paid For?

Funding varies, with different countries doing it in different ways. Taxation or compulsory insurance tends to form the basis for funding and covers the majority of the cost. Levies and private payment can make up some of it, while in certain systems additional services are available at a price, with this supplementing the rest of the services offered.

Compulsory insurance is where citizens have to Wholesale Toronto Blue Jays Jerseys , by law, purchase health insurance, which then funds the health system. Everyone is therefore covered as everyone is insured. Those who cannot afford this often have insurance provided free of charge. Taxing citizens on their income is the other main form of funding, whereby some of the money governments collect in taxation goes towards health.

Private Healthcare

Just because a country has a universal healthcare system doesn’t mean there is no private healthcare. Many countries have a private health industry as well as a national health service. They can pay for healthcare insurance, meaning they receive certain types of care privately depending on the specific package that they pay for. Certain treatments are also available on an individual basis privately Wholesale Texas Rangers Jerseys , which can lead to quicker treatment or a better quality of service.

Healthcare systems do vary from country to country, with no two systems identical. The benefits of universal healthcare cannot be denied. It means that all citizens can receive healthcare, including essential treatment, whatever their financial circumstances.

Calls mounted Monday for -action against Paris Saint--Germain's (PSG) temperamental star striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic over comments he made about his host country which one French minister called ""insulting.""

Far-right National Front leader Marine le Pen said that Ibrahimovic, who apologized within hours of his outburst after PSG lost 3-2 at Bordeaux Wholesale Tampa Bay Rays Jerseys , should leave France.

The Swedish striker, who was controversially sent off in the Champions League game against Chelsea last week, had scored twice to twice level the game. But he stormed off the pitch and said in front of television cameras, ""In 15 years, I have never seen such a referee. In this s**t country Wholesale St. Louis Cardinals Jerseys , this country does not deserve PSG. We are too good for this country.""

The 33-year-old Swedish international backed down after France's Sports Minister Patrick Jenner called the remarks ""insulting."" Jenner later welcomed Ibrahimovic's apology however.

""I would like to apologize if anyone felt offended,"" Ibrahimovic said in a statement. ""I want to make it clear that my remarks were not directed at France or the French. I was talking about football, I lost the match and I accept that but I don't accept when the referee does not follow the rules.

""I expressed myself when I was upset and everyone knows that in these moments, the words surpass the meaning.""

Jenner said it was the statement of ""a great champion"" but the apology did not calm the controversy.

""Those who consider that France is a s**t country can leave it,"" Le Pen told the France Info radio station.

Jerome Guedj Wholesale Seattle Mariners Jerseys , a leading -Socialist party politician, called the remarks ""unacceptable."" ""Let him play football and shut up, or at least be respectful of this country, the football -supporters who were also -insulted.""
