Synopsis: With the inequities of global health more evident and stark today than at any point in history, FROM DURBAN TO TOMORROW recalls the mass protests led by people living with HIV in Durban, South Africa, which radically transformed the global landscape for human rights in health some two decades ago. These events in the year 2000 gave rise to a series of major advances in public health for marginalised people the world over, yet recent years have seen many of these hard-won gains severely eroded, putting tens of millions of lives at risk and compounding the threat posed by a deadly global pandemic. In FROM DURBAN TO TOMORROW, the stories of five frontline health advocates from different parts of the world underscore this rapidly worsening crisis and herald the impending battle for a meaningful, universal human right to health.

Director's Statement

The unfolding battle for equitable access to COVID vaccines is a timely reminder that the forces of greed are omnipresent in the realm of public health, flowery homilies about “caring”, “curing the world” and “scientific innovation” notwithstanding. FROM DURBAN TO TOMORROW is a short but important film, highlighting the global connections between grassroots people’s movements approaching fundamental human rights in health from different angles and making common cause to move the world forward to a place where the primary considerations in ‘healthcare’ are not runaway profit and intentional scarcity, but an understanding that we as a species can only rise or fall together.
