Evaluation of the Polish health care system. Report.

The assessment of the Polish health care system contained in the report "State of Health in the EU: Poland - Country Health Profile 2021" prepared jointly by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) and the European Observatory on Health Systems and Policies shows all the pathologies we know. And it is worth noting that in 2021 it was definitely worse than in 2020, the year from which the data was used to formulate the report's conclusions.

💫The COVID-19 pandemic and associated turmoil has caused life expectancy in Poland to fall from 78 years to 76.6 years between 2019 and 2020. As much as 1.4 years less! A statistical Pole lives 6.7 years shorter than Norway, which takes first place. The difference in life expectancy at birth between Poland and the EU average has increased to 4 years. Over-mortality in Poland in 2020 was one of the highest in the EU.

We most often die from:


▶️ ischaemic heart disease - 11.1 per cent
▶️ cerebral strokes - 7 percent
▶️COVID-19 - 6 percent 💫
▶️ lung cancer - 5.6 percent
▶️ pneumonia - 4.4 per cent.
▶️ colorectal cancer - 3 per cent.
▶️ diabetes - 2.3 per cent.
▶️ liver disease - 1.9 per cent.
▶️ breast cancer - 1.7 per cent.
▶️ COPD - 1.6 per cent.

Air pollution causes up to 8% of deaths in Poland. Smog really kills‼.

💰The percentage of GDP allocated to health in Poland remains low, with only 6.5 per cent in 2019, and health funding per capita is well below the EU average (10 per cent). Health money is spent on:


▶️ inpatient care - 37 per cent of total expenditure
▶️ outpatient care - 31 per cent
▶️ pharmaceuticals and medical devices - 22 per cent
▶️ long-term care - 7 per cent of total expenditure
▶️ preventive care - 2 per cent

We treat the effects, not the prevention. We misuse medicines on a massive scale. Expenditure on medicines in Poland accounts for the majority of expenditure on non-reimbursed health services. In Poland, expenditure on medicines accounts for 12.6% of expenditure on non-reimbursed health services, whereas in the EU the average is only 3.7%.
According to Eurostat, Poland is the country with the lowest number of doctors in the European Union (2.4 doctors per 1,000 inhabitants with an EU average of 3.9) and nurses (5.2 per 1,000 inhabitants with an EU average of 8.4).

‼️🚑 Unfortunately, the report does not show the staff shoulders in the emergency services. But we do know that the shortages are huge. 🚑‼️

Before the pandemic, unmet medical care needs in Poland were above the EU average. In the first year of the COVID-19 pandemic, a Eurofund survey found that more than a quarter of Poles (28 per cent) reported unmet needs for medical tests or treatment.
