La speranza di vita in Italia è fra le più alte dell’area dell’OCSE. I tassi di obesità sono bassi (ma alti fra gli adolescenti); il consumo di alcolici, la percentuale di fumatori abituali e l’inquinamento atmosferico sono tutti prossimi alla media OCSE. L'accesso alle cure è garantito e l'assistenza è di buona qualità, mentre si prescrivono troppi antibiotici. In Italia, la spesa sanitaria è lievemente inferiore alla media OCSE.

Life expectancy in Italy is among the highest across the OECD. Obesity rates are low (but growing for children); alcohol consumption, smoking rates and air pollution are all close to the OECD average. While indicators for access and quality of care are generally good, high rates of antibiotic prescriptions are a concern. Italy spends slightly less than the OECD average on health.
