The 2018 Healthcare Access and Quality (HCAQ) index by international medical journal The Lancet , for example, ranks Lebanon in 33rd place with 86 points (in a previous HCAQ edition, Lebanon was ranked 31st with the same score), rubbing shoulders with European nations like Estonia and Portugal.
A May 2018 study on Lebanon's health governance notes that the country's diverse (some say fragmented) health system provides "compared to other countries, good value for money." When the HCAP score is put in relation with total healthcare spend as share of GDP (in constant purchase-power parity dollar), Lebanon's score of 86 places it below some countries with higher health spending but, as the study points out, the country "is on the frontier curve." This is to say that none of the countries with lower healthcare spend than Lebanon as share of GDP rank above it in the HCAQ index.
