“Revolutionary Medicine: A Story of the First Garifuna Hospital” tells the story of a project to build a free and holistic healthcare system in Ciriboya, Colon, on Honduras’ Caribbean Coast. The hospital—run on solar energy, in a community without paved roads or electricity—has provided nearly half a million free consultations and offers an alternative to the increasingly privatized national health system in Honduras. Built and defended by the communities it serves, and led by the inspirational Dr. Luther Castillo, the project has become a symbol of Garifuna self-determination. 40 Minutes.
