Four in five Americans say the healthcare system needs fundamental change. Can the U.S. learn anything from the rest of the world about how to run a healthcare system, or are these nations so culturally different that their solutions would not be acceptable? FRONTLINE correspondent T.R. Reid examines the healthcare systems of other advanced capitalist democracies to see what ideas might help the U.S. reform its broken healthcare system.

Comments about PBS FRONTLINE: Sick Around the World DVD:

I bought this for my Healthcare Reimbursement class, to show students what healthcare around the world is like. This opens their eyes to be advocates and to form opinions about the current healthcare reform.

Voting on Healthcare: Watch This!

By Drowning in Medical Debt

from Gloucester, Virginia

Verified Buyer

Comments about PBS FRONTLINE: Sick Around the World DVD:

Five different countries with five different health care systems. All cost half as much to run as the US's system and offer as good as or even better care and no individual has medical debt or bankruptcy problems as we do here. Good unbiased coverage shows the pros and cons of each system. I think all of the politicians in DC should watch this to get some ideas because they evidently are at a loss to implement a system that allows me to have decent medical care without constantly carrying a large medical debt.

My friend said I HAD to see this...

By Barbara B

from Anchorage, AK

Comments about PBS FRONTLINE: Sick Around the World DVD:

He was right. I am fairly conservative, and quite concerned about the medical system in the United States. These other countries have something we need to look into. Very well done..not pro anything..just showing what else is out there. Full of great ideas.

Necessary information for all!

By Pedaler

from Billings, Montana

Verified Reviewer

Comments about PBS FRONTLINE: Sick Around the World DVD:

I viewed this DVD with two different groups. All persons agreed that the U.S. system must change, the sooner the better. Most of the viewers said that private for profit insurance companies must be discontinued. All agreed that all people should have medical care, regardless if they are employed. The comparisons of the variety of systems from five countries by T.R. Reid is very well done.
