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.
