The Netherlands scores best of class again at the EHCI

The Netherlands score high on all disciplines, with higher grades than 2015.

In each country the amount of money that was spent on care and the outcomes on that was also evaluated. The Netherlands on this scored on place 11. To improve this, the Netherlands can learn from Macedonia, who score best on this Bang-for-the-Buck list.
