We see how remote communities in Nigeria are themselves taking responsibility for making sure they are treated for the diseases which pose the greatest danger. Manufacturing powerful, effective drugs is one thing. Making sure they get to the people that need them most is quite another – and that is what this film looks at. We travels to rural area of Iseyin, about 70 kms from the university town of Ibadan. There we investigate how the community has organized the distribution of drugs and what impact this method has had on the health of the community.
