Kill or Cure?

October 5, 2005 by PATH

BBC hosts PATH documentaries on disease in the developing world

The documentary series Kill or Cure? highlights some of the world’s most devastating diseases. PATH recently partnered with Rockhopper TV to develop three documentaries for the series—on cervical cancer, Japanese encephalitis, and Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib). The programs explore how wealth, poverty, gender, age, and geography conspire to influence individuals’ susceptibility to disease and their chances of survival. The programs also will profile hope—that is, the latest cutting-edge cures.
