Iceland, Sweden and Finland are ranked as the healthiest nations in the world with Germany, Switzerland, Australia, Denmark, Canada, Austria and the Netherlands also receiving high marks according to Forbes. The highest ranking nations historically have had more nationalized health care systems. The United States came in at 11th place. This ranking was based on health and environmental statistics from the UN, World Health Organization, and the World Bank.
I’m not sure about an index called the citizen health index, but you can find the Human Development Index for all countries. Within the Human Development Index, you can sort by a number of indicators, including health. From there you can select from a number of characteristics that you are interested in, including access to health care, prescription drug use, abortion rate, infant mortality rate, etc. There’s dozens to choose from and it ranks each country.
