“Bending the Arc” is a very inspiring film: In 1983 three youth, barely out of their teens, came together in a squatter settlement in Haiti determined to provide the same quality of healthcare as you could get in the best hospitals anywhere. The community health model they developed, now in places on four continents, has saved millions of lives.
The evidence they provided for the ability to provide health equity for the very poor changed the minds of those in the highest halls of power.
