Bending the Arc is a documentary about a team of young people—Paul Farmer, Jim Yong Kim, Ophelia Dahl—whose charitable medical work 30 years ago ignited a global health movement. Their goal was simple but daring: to make high quality health care available to everyone, even in the world’s poorest countries. Fighting entrenched diseases, political and bureaucratic machinery, and the existing charity and medical establishments, these crusaders took their fight from the village to the world stage, to ensure that health care is a right for all, and that geography should not determine destiny.

The Bending the Arc movie screening is co-sponsored by the UVA PIH Engage graduate and undergraduate chapters, the Center for Global Health Student Advisory Board, and the UVA Center for Global Health Equity. It is a Global Week event.
