Doctors Without Borders24:50

This article is more than 17 years old.

As we learned again this fall, much of the world lives under the control of governments that are unable to provide the most basic of services. So the burden is left to non-governmental organizations — NGO's — to build the roads, feed the hungry and take care of the sick. Doctors Without Borders is one such NGO. It won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1999. This hour, WBUR's documentary unit, "Inside Out," tells the story of Doctors Without Borders, the critical NGO known for its rebellious image.
