Series: Kill or Cure? (29)

29 x 25 minute documentary series produced for the BBC & seen on TV by over 300 million people in more than 200 countries

Diseases that are no threat in developed nations claim tens of millions of lives every year in developing countries. Modern, effective treatments targeting affluent westerners are too expensive for the world’s poor. Old drugs are cheap but resistance is spreading very fast. In some cases the only drugs available kill up to one in 10 of the patients who take them. Kill or Cure covers the hunt for effective and affordable treatments for populations earning less than a few dollars a day. But even in developed nations, the hunt is on for cures for diseases such as HIV and Buruli ulcers.
