Bhopal Disaster: 30 Years Later

Gary Cohen reflects on lessons learned since the disaster and how we can create a healthy future.

Learn the story of the Sambhavna Clinic, a non-profit holistic health clinic in Bhopal, India, built to treat those injured by the Union Carbide toxic gas release in 1984. "Bhopal is where the world learned what chemical terror and its aftermath looks like," stated Gary Cohen, President and Co-Founder of Health Care Without Harm and executive producer of the video.

Amidst this chemical disaster, the Sambhavna Clinic is an Oasis of Healing

"Sambhavna is the embodiment of what healthcare in the 21st century should be about - free, appropriate scale, integration of the best of western and traditional medicine, and patient centered." The basic architectural philosophy used in building the clinic is simple-use local materials and techniques and incorporate local traditions and culture. The result is a model of sustainable healthcare.
