Synopsis

Storyline:
The epic story of the global health movement is seen through the intimate narrative of Dr. Paul Farmer, Dr. Jim Yong Kim, and other courageous doctors and patients who led the fight, against seemingly insurmountable obstacles, to bring medical care to the poorest people and most neglected regions around the world.
User Reviews: This film is inspiring, not just because of the incredible work done by its protagonists, but also because of the new way of thinking it presents around how healthcare should be delivered, not just for the poor, but everywhere. It is damning critique of the way in which we have thought about global health for years, and offers a perspective that will hopefully lead to more people empowering communities to build health systems that work for them and are not dictated by people who do not understand those communities. This film is an excellent piece of education for anyone interested in global health, international development, or medicine at large.
