Whether we're rushing a child to the emergency room after a fall or making chicken soup for a feverish spouse, love inspires to act when a family member gets sick. Global health activists EdithElliott and ShahedAlam believe we can harness this power to create better health outcomes for everyone. Learn how their organization Noora Health works with doctors and nurses in India and Bangladesh to train the family members of hospital patients with essential skills to support their sick loved ones - and how they plan to expand their reach to support 70 million caregivers who care for more than one billion people over the next six years.
This ambitious plan is a part of the Audacious Project, TED's initiative to inspire and fund global change. Watch all the talks from this year's cohort at ted.com/audaciousproject
