English MD travels to Bangladesh to improve community health.

Life - From Docklands to Dhaka

Sam Everington is an MD in Bromley-by-Bow, one of the poorest districts of London. 40% of his patients are from Bangladesh. Sam passionately believes community health involves not just treating illness, but working with local people on jobs, housing, and education.

But with far worse poverty back in Bangladesh, Sam has always wondered whether lessons learned in London will work across the globe. In this video Sam travels to Bangladesh for the first time to try and find out.

With interviews from Gro Harlem Brundtland, Executive Director of the World Health Organization, Fred Sai, former Director of the International Planned Parenthood Federation and Nobel prize winner Amartya Sen.

'What is the prescription for good health in the global village? Sam Everington, a British physician and health minister, illustrates that poverty is a primary source of the world's ills.' Timothy McGettigan, Professor of Sociology, University of Southern Colorado
