In honor of National Women's Health Week, we're taking a look at how countries around the world are stacking up in the fight against breast cancer. Specifically, we looked at rates of mammography screening, mortality rates per 100,000 women and relative 5 year survival rates.
The data highlighted here is from the OECD's fifth edition of Health at a Glance. Health at a Glance provides the latest comparable data on different aspects of the performance of health systems in OECD countries. It provides striking evidence of large variations across countries in the costs, activities and results of health systems.
