IRIS presents its Public Confidence Study 2023 on Health Care

  • Sep 7, 2023

We are proud to announce that we are presenting the first release of our Annual Report on Health Care Confidence. It provides a multi-country view of public sentiment about the state of nations and their economies as well as household financial outlooks.

 Nearly 19,000 people were surveyed across 27 countries during February, March and April, 2023 —a nationally representative sample of 500 to 1,000 adults was interviewed in each country. Among the key results: 

  • Overall, views about health care systems lean to pessimistic, with a majority saying the system is either in crisis (25%) or deteriorating (32%). About four in ten think their country’s system is in excellent (7%) or good shape (35%). More than half in Ireland, nearly half in Greece, and over four in ten in Panama and Romania think their country’s health care system is in a state of crisis.
  • When asked about the cause of problems in health care systems, two-thirds blame inefficient management (63%) compared to insufficient funding (36%). Roughly three-quarters in Panama, Indonesia, Colombia, and Lithuania blame inefficient management.
  • On average, just under four in ten approve of the way their country’s national government is handling the issue of health care. Approval levels vary considerably across countries. Approval levels are the highest in South Korea (74%), Indonesia (69%), and India (68%) and lowest in Bulgaria (17%), Panama (19%), and Poland (23%).
