Our September 26th Screening at Columbia University School of Social Work in New York was standing room only!  Call CVSA about screenings of this inspiring film!

The new documentary "Revolutionary Medicine: A Story of the First Garifuna Hospital" tells the story of a project to build a free and holistic healthcare system on Honduras's Caribbean coast.

Built, administered and defended by the Afro-Caribbean Garifuna communities it serves, the hospital stands as an alternative to the country's increasingly privatized healthcare system.
