Though the health rates of the population are becoming better, the differences due to regional and educational situation are huge, and Hungary is dragging behind in many fields compared to the other EU states.
According to vg.hu’s article, 26 percent of the deaths (approximately 32,000 cases) could be prevented in 2014 if there were proper equipment and better healthcare system, based on the date of National Healthcare Services Center (ÁEEK). The Hungarian health status rates are far below the level of most EU member states, despite the recent increase in this field.
Hungary has a higher than average death rate in connection to such diseases like cardiovascular illnesses, several types of tumors in case of women (cervix, breast, larynx, trachea, bronchial and lung cancer), and colon and rectum cancer in case of men. The lag is increasing in the field of respiratory diseases in both sexes, as well as deaths related to mental illnesses and behavioral deficits.
The most frequent causes of death are the cardiovascular diseases and cancers, as most of the deaths of people under 65 die of malignant tumor. In the case of deaths connected to ischemic heart illnesses, Hungary is the 26th in the EU out of the 28, and it is the laggard in malignant tumor deaths.
The difference between regions is incredible. Financing their medication is a huge burden for the less well-to-do households. The best chances of survival are provided in Central Hungary, while Northern Hungary has the worst charts from this aspect. The life expectancy of males is almost 7, of females is more than 8 years for the favor of the center. The average life expectancy in general was 72.3 years among men and 79.4 among women.
A better healthcare system could have saved the life of 14 percent of the people dying in 2014, and additional 12 percent could have been saved by public care operations. This means approximately 32,000 people, the population of a smaller town. Every second deaths could have been avoided among the people under 65 years with the proper public interference. This gives Hungary the third worst statistics among the 28 EU member states in 2013.
