The U.S. spends nearly 17 percent of its gross domestic product on health care, while Singapore spends about 4 percent of its own GDP. According to the World Health Organization, Singapore has one of the best health care systems. The countrys 4 million people are required to save a portion of each paycheck, which then goes into an interest-bearing savings account used to pay future medical bills.

Worldfocus special correspondent Daljit Dahliwal and producers Mary Lockhart and Ara Ayer report from Singapores hospitals.
