Inside America's Medical Supply Crisis

The coronavirus has exposed deadly weaknesses in global medical supply chains. For the past seven months, a collaborative team has been interviewing manufacturers and government officials, analyzing records, and tracing key medical supplies.

Produced by the PBS series FRONTLINE, the Associated Press, and the Global Reporting Centre, "America’s Medical Supply Crisis" is a joint investigation examining the failures and unheeded warnings of a system at risk.

The Pulitzer Center is an education partner on this project, creating curricular materials and interactive learning experiences.
