Sick Around The World

Season 26, Episode 11 of 14

Four in five Americans say the U.S. health-care system needs "fundamental" change. Can the U.S. learn anything from the rest of the world about how to run a health-care system or are these nations so culturally different from us that their solutions would simply not be acceptable to Americans? FRONTLINE correspondent T.R. Reid examines the health-care systems of other advanced capitalist democracies -- the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Switzerland, Japan and Taiwan -- to see what tried and tested ideas might help us reform our broken health-care system.
