Before the pandemic, in 2019, OECD countries spent an average of 8.8 percent of GDP on healthcare. This is a figure that has remained almost unchanged since 2013, according to the latest report "Health at a Glance", compiled by experts from the organization. Among OECD countries, which are 38 developed and democratic states, Poland ranks rather at the bottom of the table in terms of spending on health. Last year, we spent 6.7 percent of GDP on the healthcare system.

Weak access to healthcare translates into dissatisfaction with the healthcare system. This relationship can be seen in the data. In 2022, an average of 66.8 percent of the population in OECD countries was satisfied with the level of healthcare. Poland is the country at the bottom of the ranking, with one of the worst results in the entire OECD. Only 51 percent of people in Poland are satisfied with healthcare. Lithuanians are equally (un)satisfied with healthcare as Poles. Only in Chile (39 percent), Colombia (41 percent), Greece, and Hungary (44 percent) is it worse.
