The quasi-official Twitter account for Iranian president Hassan Rouhani said Wednesday that the country would be adopting a universal health care system to “extend medical insurance to all Iranians.”
In English at least, the new government is also adopting a nickname that would sound familiar to American ears: RouhaniCare.
Gov will extend medical insurance to all Iranians. First step will be to cover 5mn uninsured Iranians by the social safety net #RouhaniCare

Rouhani doesn’t tweet from the account himself, but he has tacitly endorsed it, saying it is written by “friends.” The English-language account is also retweeted and cited by the New York Times’s Tehran bureau chief.
