RotavirusStreaming Video - 2006
GlaxoSmithKline's new rotavirus vaccine can potentially save children across the globe from fatal diarrhea. This program guides viewers through the medicine's development process, and examines the highly unconventional way it is being distributed-with the initial test phase occurring in Mexico, rather than in a wealthy part of the world. Interviews with officials from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Mexican Ministry of Health, and GlaxoSmithKline Biochemicals shed light on their fragile yet groundbreaking organizational partnership. The result: an in-depth look at the real-world progress science is making against a microscopic killer.
