According to Ara Chackerian, many first-world countries are worried continuously about healthcare with millions of people depending on medical assistance to fight various diseases for them to live longer. Healthcare costs are increasing in most countries, especially for people with low incomes. The number of wealthy individuals struggling to pay for sufficient medical care is on the rise particularly for ailments that need regular attention. Other countries such as Japan and France have advanced healthcare systems even though their main concern is the source of ample funding. Nations providing free healthcare are concerned about the cost of the services having to deal with uncertainties of whether their national budgets can afford to fund the sector.  For more details you can visit their twitter account.
