Program Overview

PDF

At the dawn of the 21st century, we can prevent, treat or cure most of the deadliest diseases known to humankind—and yet millions die needlessly every year because the benefits of modern medicine and public health fail to reach them. What are the obstacles to providing care to populations in need? From the villages of the Gambia to the cities and towns of Thailand, from the sun-scorched refugee camps of Chad to the teeming streets of Bangladesh—this episode chronicles innovative health programs and charismatic leaders who, against all odds, are Delivering the Goods to millions of individuals—and inspiring a new vision for the future of global health.
