Sick Around the World

Sick Around the World

To share lessons learned — positive and negative — by healthcare systems around the world, a new film from the FRONTLINE documentary series explores healthcare delivery in Taiwan, Japan, Germany, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom. Funded by PBS, the Colorado Trust, the Commonwealth Fund, and the MacArthur, Park, and Colorado Health foundations, the documentary, Sick Around the World, explores the pros and cons of universal coverage, the cost of drugs, and what it's like to practice medicine in different countries. The documentary can be viewed in its entirety on the PBS Web site, where visitors will also find information, interviews, and analysis from the film.
