Specifically, the Gini coefficient of the U.S. was invery close to the average Gini coefficient of African. Bench-marking U.S. quality measures against those of similarly large and wealthy countries is one way to assess how successful the U.S. has been at improving care for its population, and to learn from systems that often produce better outcomes.
