In 2010 the U.S. Congress passed a historic new health care program known as the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA), commonly nicknamed Obamacare. The program promised to cover millions of Americans who were currently uninsured with affordable health insurance.

Access to health care is a global social problem.
