Abstract:

Although progress in the scientific understanding of the HIV virus has been made at an amazing pace, there is no "quick fix" for AIDS. Around the world, treatments for AIDS and other pandemics such as tuberculosis and heart disease are determined primarily by economic and social factors. Realizing this, some doctors are practicing a new kind of medicine, leaving the confines of the hospital to try to prevent disease at its source in the community. Looking at the United States, Australia, and Thailand, "Pandemic" focuses on maverick doctors who attempt to go to the root of the problem.
