IGHS invites you to a free screening of Bending the Arc.
Thirty years ago, a group of young, enthusiastic, and caring friends came together with a goal that was both simple and complex: to provide health care for all, particularly the poor in the developing world. This inspiring documentary charts the success of Partners in Health, an NGO which builds hospitals and delivers health care throughout the world as they work to bend the arc toward justice.
In 1983, three young people barely out of their teens came together in a squatter settlement in Haiti began a public health revolution by treating patients who had been abandoned by the health establishment.
Dr. Paul Farmer, Dr. Jim Yong Kim, and activist Ophelia Dahl, along with Todd McCormack and investor Thomas White began a movement that changed global health forever.
Reaching far beyond the issue of health care, Bending the Arc shows how moral imagination, strategy, and sheer will together can change the trajectory of the world, bending the arc of the moral universe closer to justice.
Bending the Arc tells their story.
