- Program Description
Four in five Americans say the U.S. health-care system needs "fundamental" change. Can the U.S. learn anything from the rest of the world about how to run a health-care system, or are these nations so culturally different from us that their solutions would simply not be acceptable to Americans? FRONTLINE correspondent T.R. Reid examines first-hand the health-care systems of other advanced capitalist democracies-UK, France, Germany, Switzerland, Japan, and Taiwan-to see what tried and tested ideas might help us reform our broken health-care system.
