In this collection of compelling highlights from the critically-acclaimed Rx for Survival: A Global Health Challenge, viewers are taken on a worldwide journey to see just how modern medical innovation has saved lives and raised hope among the planet's poor. From a Baltimore-based eye doctor whose experiments with Vitamin A saved much more than children's eyesight to the creative use of motorcycles in helping health-workers to reach out-of-the-way patients, a landmark HIV/AIDS program launched by a Botswana businessman, and the efforts of community volunteers in helping Bangladesh families escape the grip of poverty through education, these inspiring stories are but a small sampling of the remarkable achievements documented on the landmark series from which they were taken.
