Getting Better: Stories from KEM Hospital and GS Medical College, India

Student Event

Join us for a film screening, dinner, & discussion with Gulserene Dastur, the filmmaker, & Dr. David Jones, A. Bernard Ackerman Professor of the Culture of Medicine

“The Hospital that never turns anyone away”: A 2200 bed, state-run hospital which treats 1.7 million people a year – overcrowded, used and abused, KEM Hospital is the last resort for the destitute. On an average day, the hospital admits 230 in-patients, treats 560 emergency patients, operates on 150 patients, and sees 5800 out-patients. “Getting Better” was born out of 2 years of extensive research and 4 years of shooting, and is a snapshot into a system where “nothing is easy, but nothing is impossible.”

Cosponsored with the Harvard Global Health Institute
