In recent years, there's been a dramatic increase in the number of children being diagnosed with serious psychiatric disorders and prescribed medications that are just beginning to be tested in children. The drugs can cause serious side effects, and virtually nothing is known about their long-term impact. "It's really to some extent an experiment, trying medications in these children of this age," child psychiatrist Dr. Patrick Bacon tells FRONTLINE. "It's a gamble. And I tell parents there's no way to know what's going to work."

The age of AIDS ( visu )
5 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 830 libraries worldwide
Part one follows the trail of a medical mystery which began in 1981 when five gay men in Los Angeles were diagnosed with a deadly new disease. Traces the international response in the first years of the epidemic, contrasting moments of inspirational leadership with the tragedy of missed opportunities. Reveals the astounding spread of the infection to over 70 million infections in 2006. Part two explores the chasm that emerged between rich and poor following the development of the miraculous "triple cocktail" HIV treatment. While the discovery seemed to signal a new era in which AIDS was no longer a fatal disease, the high price of the drugs meant they were unaffordable to patients in developing nations. Also examines the next wave of the AIDS epidemic in some of the most populous and strategically important nations in the world, including Russia, India and China, and tracks the same pattern of official denial and political indifference that characterized the epidemic in so many other countries

As the worsening economy leads to massive job losses--potentially forcing millions more Americans to go without health insurance--FRONTLINE travels the country examining the nation's broken health care system and explores the need for a fundamental overhaul. This film dissects the private insurance system, a system that not only fails to cover 46 million Americans, but also leaves millions more under-insured and at risk of bankruptcy. Around the world, other developed democracies offer universal health care, requiring insurance companies to cover everyone. At its best, American health care can be very good. But not if people across the U.S. are forced into making life decisions--staying in jobs and even bad marriages--to find or keep health insurance
