This certainly isn't coherent with the current chain, but I was wondering if anyone from France or anyone who has knowledge of France's healthcare system please tell me why they are ranked number one in health-care. Like a lot of other European countries, do they have a socialized health-care system?

An interesting article...

"When it comes to getting access to potentially lifesaving or life-prolonging new cancer drugs, universal health care in Canada is a myth, a new report says.

What's available free to one patient in one province is not available to a similar patient with the same cancer somewhere else in the country - a hodgepodge approach to funding drugs that is costing lives, according to a report issued yesterday by the Cancer Advocacy Coalition."

No. But they've got universal health care like all others. Wikipedia about health in France
