If you are going to take a look on it, countries who are not well developed have shorter life expectancy. While those countries who have a well-developed economy have the chance to live longer.
The reason is obvious. A well-developed country or known as an advanced country have access to different level of health care. As they are the one who can discover how to cure a deadly illness.
Here are the places in the world where people have the highest life expectancy.
#1 Hong Kong 84.0

#3 Switzerland 83.4
Switzerland is famous for being a neutral country during the past conflicts in the world. In this country, the government requires every Swiss to buy an Insurance on private companies. With the reason that Insurance companies are mandated also to accept their applicants. The cost of Insurance is undeniably expensive.

Known to be one of the cleanest and the least corrupt country in the world. Singapore also proves that its health care system will allow its citizen to benefit from it. Within the 30 decades, the life expectancy of this country has been increasing in average.
Singapore uses a “3M” framework on its health care system. Medifund, this is for its citizen who doesn’t have the capability to afford the health care system. Medisave, this is a mandatory medical saving account system of the country that covers the 85% of the population. Lastly, the Medishield, which is a healthcare insurance program funded by the government for its citizen.
Although, the government has that kind of system in their health care system. Singapore still remains to be one of the countries who spend less in their health care program in the world. The principle behind this is simple. Spend less without reducing the quality of the health care program.
