Film Screening: Mountains of Hope

America’s health care system has its problems, but at least treating patients isn’t a constant struggle for our doctors.

In Lesotho in Africa it’s a different story. The money is bad, the benefits are few, and it’s terribly hard work. The HIV/AIDS rate is out of the roof and there are other epidemics that the doctors have to find a way to treat. Many doctors from Lesotho move to South Africa, where the work is easier and the money is better, but for those who stay it’s a constant struggle.

Mountains of Hope is a 30 minute documentary made by Boston medical students about the situation is Lesotho. It’s being screened tonight at Vanderbilt’s Sarratt Cinema at 7pm as part of the International Lens film series.
