City Life Series, Part 3: The Health Protestors
In 1978, the World Health Organization promised to deliver basic health care for the world's population. Today, in many developing countries, health care is enjoyed only the by wealthy. Doctors, health professionals, and civil rights activists met in Dhaka in December 2000 at the People's Health Assembly to draw up demands for health care in a new People's Health Charter. This program follows the process to the final publication of the charter on the last day of the Assembly.
