World-class health care for all: Dr. Ernest Madu on TED.com

Posted by: Tedstaff

Dr. Ernest Madu runs the Heart Institute of the Caribbean in Kingston, Jamaica, where he proves that — with careful design, smart technical choices, and a true desire to serve — it’s possible to offer world-class health care in the developing world. Listen for some eye-opening statistics on heart disease, which is as ruthless a killer in poorer nations as in richer ones. (Recorded June 2007 in Arusha, Tanzania. Duration: 16:49.)
