    Republicans beg to differ.

      It is funny how you Americans hate each other. From all the first world countries, you are the one closest to another civil war. Shame.

      Republicans don’t think that people everywhere should have access to doctors? I don’t think that is true. Republicans would normally think that Americans who are struggling in their own lives shouldn’t have to pay more of their money to help other struggling people across the world. This is a charity…

  2. I watched the entire video.

  3. The real problem is most doctors suck at their job. They just prescribe you the meds that they’ve been told to prescribe by Big Pharma companies.In my 29 years, I’ve yet to meet a competent doctor.

      Such comment can only come from someone with absolutely no connection to the rest of the world. Someone with absolute arrogance and no foresight to see that the people in question of this video are not some middle class schmucks like you, living in a modern city, in a rich country, with a relatively strong healthcare infrastructure, that “big pharma” can find lucrative to scam.

      These are people living in third world countries, no access to healthcare, little to no access to basic human amenities. They have little to no money and their lives are nowhere as luxurious as yours, that they can be scammed by “big pharma”, because there’s hardly anything to scam out of them to begin with.

      Fucking wakeup and realize that Earth is far bigger than the bubble you live in.

    • I was talking about doctors in general, most of us live in developped countries so we can’t really relate to the problems raised in this video.

      kulik03 You can’t relate to the problems raised in this video so you proceed to comment on some random problems of yours? Truly intelligent and noble, bravo sir 😉

    • +Thunder Cat We don’t exist just so we can think about other people’s problems in the 3rd world. Just because there are terrible problems in 3rd world countries does not mean we should overlook our own problems.

  4. my English is poor, but your speech is excellent.

  9. No one should die period, but looking at the situation we’ve got a loooong way to go before that statement even becomes meaningful…

  10. One of the best Ted Talks I’ve got to watch. Thank You for sharing..

    Tell that to the many young graduated Doctors in Australia, that refuse to work in rural towns , where Doctors & services are in criticality short supply, because it doesn’t suit their Yuppie lifestyle. Pathetic having peoples lives at risk in a country that boasts first world status .

    Pretty much everybody agrees!
