Watch Sick Around the World - a global look at health care systems →

Interested in health policy? To examine and understand the inadequacies of health care in America, T.R. Reid (a Washington Post foreign correspondent) takes a look at different health care systems around the world. His work is featured in this PBS Frontline Program, Sick Around the World, and also in his book, The Healing of America: A global quest for better, cheaper, and fairer health care.

The PBS program features segments from the different countries he visits, including interviews with citizens and medical practitioners, and is available in its entirety on the PBS Frontline website!

The Healing of America is a great read as well, explaining the many disparities between health care, quality, and access across the globe, leaving the reader with a much better understanding of approaches to health care which are not often explored or discussed in the American conversation about reform.
