Two billion people across the globe currently don’t have access to essential medicines.  But that doesn’t mean they can’t be helped.  Some of the speakers at the Human Rights Council’s recent Social Forum have managed to transform health care in their home countries with very few resources. They shared their experiences with other international experts, activists, and governments in Geneva.
