Global Health Pie!

Check out “More Pie,” a two-minute, fun film about global health funding! I wrote, directed, and edited this video while interning at Physicians for Human Rights during summer 2009.

Policy makers, NGOs, and activists often discuss whether US funding for global health disproportionately supports HIV/AIDS prevention and treatment. They pit HIV/AIDS funding against support for other diseases, such as malaria, cancer, or TB (for an example, take a look at this Boston Globe Op-Ed). These diseases should not be portrayed competing for funding! The conversation should turn to how we can increase funding for all of them in order to build comprehensive health systems.

“More Pie” tries to make the global health funding debate accessible and understandable, helping catalyze advocacy efforts. Check out the video and share it with your friends!
