Sick Around the World: PBS

The PBS program Frontline has focusing its show on the topic “Sick Around the World.”  The show airs on Tuesday, April 15 and may be of interest to Healthcare Economist readers.  From the Frontline publicist:

To examine the question of universal health care coverage, FRONTLINE teams up with T.R. Reid, a veteran foreign correspondent for The Washington Post, to find out how five other capitalist democracies–United Kingdom, Japan, Germany, Taiwan and Switzerland–deliver health care and what the United States might learn from their successes and their failures.

After the broadcast, the program will also be available at the Frontline website.
