*wikipedia numbers from CIA Factbook
Vietnam is at 43/100k, obesity rate is 2%, healthcare system is 73.
Kuwait is 12/100k, obesity rate 37.9%, healthcare system is 58.
USA is at 19/100k obesity rate is 36.9%, healthcare system is 18.
Hungary is at 12/100k, obesity rate is 26.4%, healthcare is 46th.
Uruguay is 17/100k, obesity rate is 27.9%, healthcare is 39th. Uruguay is an interesting case study to compare to the US/Europe because their population is overwhelmingly European descended, much higher than the US and about equal to Canada. Per capita GDP lags significantly behind W Europe, but their health care system rates about where C and E EU members are at according to this
I'm not sure how much we can draw from the obesity stuff. Seems like less obesity helps, but even being less obese only goes so far within the healthcare system. Kuwait seems to have better outcomes. You could say the same for other oil rich states in that area, like Bahrain, UAE, Qatar, Saudi, etc.
UAE is pretty notable. 3 deaths / 100k, 31.7% obesity (a lot higher than most of Europe), 42nd healthcare system.
New Zealand is another one. 9/100k, 22nd in obesity at 30.8%, 7th overall healthcare system.
