Czechs get relatively good health care, especially, when compared to how much money they have to contribute from their own pockets. Medical coverage, infrastructure and quality are good and mostly improving, on the other hand, the system is relatively underfunded and paid heavily from public sources.

Although number of hospital beds continue declining (down more than 40% since 1980 to around 62,000 now), hospital personnel has been rising. There are some 1.85 physicians per 1,000 inhabitants in the Czech Republic, compared to 0.7 in the world on average, or 1.2 physicians in the USA.

In addition, Czech Republic generates one of the highest number of medical graduates within the OECD universe, nearly 14 persons per 100,000 inhabitants
