Program Description
GLOBAL HEALTH FRONTIERS: FOUL WATER, FIERY SERPENT, the first in a series of public television specials chronicling the devastating illnesses affecting the world's poor, follows a cast of engaging, passionate characters as they confront the disabling parasitic infection known as Guinea worm disease. The film, narrated by Academy Award®-winner Sigourney Weaver, documents the efforts of American health workers and community partners over the course of three years as they track the last-known reports of guinea worm in Ghana and Sudan. Through a relentless cycle of success and failure, facing ignorance and tribal superstitions in a harsh, vast landscape ravaged by war, these dedicated young men and women struggle to drive an ancient enemy into extinction.
