(The above presentation was given to a group of visiting producers and screenwriters for famous U.S. television shows and movies that focus on health issues, including “Grey’s Anatomy,” “The Practice,” and “The Motorcycle Diaries.”This group has been very successful in disseminating health messages to the massive U.S. television audience. These visitors wanted to learn more about critical health issues in poor communities in Mumbai so that they can incorporate global health messages into their shows. This lecture was combined with a site visit to Kaula Bandar led by PUKAR researchers.)
