Documentary Profiles Health Systems of Wealthy Nations
A documentary airing tonight on PBS' "Frontline" examines health care in five capitalist countries -- the U.K., Japan, Germany, Taiwan and Switzerland -- to explore lessons for the U.S. health care system. In conjunction with the film, NPR throughout the week is profiling the health systems of wealthy nations.
