Overview

Many European countries have a public healthcare system where citizens of the country get free access to various types of healthcare. This system on whole is very popular within the countries that it is implemented where healthcare is considered to be something that everyone should have access too and not only those who can afford it.

Even though public healthcare is very popular in Europe, the United States has opted away from this system in favour of private healthcare for which its citizens must pay to use. Surprisingly for some, this system is actually quite popular in the US where many people are very skeptical about the government providing this type service and prefer for it to continue to be private.
