The two-hour special The Heroes tells the real-life stories of unsung champions who protect people worldwide from the ravages of disease. Using highlights from the acclaimed six-hour RX for Survival--–A Global Health Challenge series, this unique program takes viewers inside the stirring campaigns that have saved countless lives and renewed hope for poor communities around the world.

An eye doctor from Baltimore discovers that two drops of Vitamin A could not only save children's sight, it might also save their lives. Motorcycle enthusiasts turn their passion into unique transportation for health workers, enabling vital care to reach people in remote areas. A young businessman managing a landmark HIV/AIDS program in Botswana proves AIDS can be treated and contained. Community volunteers spread health education to millions of rural mothers, empowering them to lead their families and Bangladesh out of extreme poverty. These are only a few of the inspiring stories about global health successes viewers will see in The Heroes.
