7:30 PM: Tidings from Hazel Kahan

Why isn’t healthcare a human right? Seven years ago, in early 2009, when Hazel Kahan interviewed India’s Dr. Sara Bhattacharji about the community health clinic she runs in Vellore, Tamil Nadu, it seemed radical to insist that healthcare was a human right, leading Hazel to wonder why Germany, India and the United States have such different approaches to healthcare.
