To take her skills as a pharmaceutical scientist out of the world of big business and into the realm of public service, Victoria Hale founded the non-profit Institute for One World Health. Her initial success was stunning: she began producing a so-called "orphan" drug that was no longer profitable enough for the large pharmaceuticals to manufacture, but was cheap, safe and mightily effective against black fever, a disease that still rages in parts of rural India. Hale tells her inspiring story.
