Trust in health­care? Not so healthy af­ter the pan­dem­ic, Edel­man’s lat­est sur­vey finds

Trust is more im­por­tant than ever in health­care, but it’s in short sup­ply thanks to the Covid-19 pan­dem­ic. More than half (52%) of peo­ple around the world lost con­fi­dence in the health­care sys­tem to han­dle ma­jor crises, ac­cord­ing to a new Edel­man’s trust barom­e­ter fo­cused on health.

Trust dropped the most in Japan (by 71%) and Mex­i­co (64%) among the ten coun­tries Edel­man sur­veyed. In the US, 48% of re­spon­dents said they lost faith in the health sys­tem dur­ing the past year.
