Revolutionary Medicine: A Story of the First Garifuna Hospital
The inspiring documentary tells the story of how the hospital's alternative health model is transforming communities on Honduras' Northern Coast and standing as an alternative to an increasingly privatized national health system. Could a remote hospital that runs on solar panels, in a community with no paved roads or electricity provide a new global model for health care? Directed by Jesse Freeston & Beth Geglia, 2013, 41 min, Honduras/Canada/ United States, Documentary in Spanish with English subt.
