first hit to this rating, she was on the last, 51st place, now were at the 55th, as the list includes another four countries. In these States, according to experts, the government spending for medicine provide citizens greater than in Russia, life expectancy.

Two years ago, the life expectancy of the average Russian was estimated at 70.5 years. But over the next two years, this rate worsened to 70,37. The decline in life expectancy occurred despite the increase in public spending on health (from 6.3 to 7.07% of GDP) and the cost of medical services per capita (from 887 to 893 USD.

Note that not so long ago, the Russian health Minister Veronika Skvortsova announced a new demographic achievements, saying that the average life expectancy of Russians in the first half of 2016
increased to 72,06. In March Skvortsova
reported to President Vladimir Putin that the average life expectancy of Russians increased to 71.2 years.

In December last year, Putin touched on the problem for Russia’s demographic topic in its
The message to the Federal Assembly. Then he announced that life expectancy in the country in 2016 will exceed 71 years, noting that over the last decade it has increased by more than five years. He stressed that increasing life expectancy is the main result of the state policy in the field of healthcare.

Countries where life expectancy is less than 70 years, the Bloomberg rating not included. However, Russia has overtaken, for example, States such as Jordan and Kazakhstan. First on health care spending of 7.45% of GDP, or $ 359 per person and life expectancy of the average Jordanian is 74.5 years, and the second spends 4,36% of GDP (539 USD per person), and the average life expectancy is 71,62 years.

Hong Kong took first place in the ranking, spends 5.4% of GDP (2021 USD per person), but the average life expectancy of its inhabitants has close to 84 years. Longer the people do not live in any of the included in the ranking of countries. In addition to Hong Kong and Singapore in the top ten included: Spain, South Korea, Japan, Italy, Israel, Chile, UAE and Australia.
