8:33 pm
>> see the lines see the need, that might change things. >> they feel a duty to help the lest fortunate and no matter what happens in washington they'll continue to be there to lend aa hand. now if passed, this bill would cut $40 billion from the food stamp program over the next ten years. however there are a lot of hurdles to overcome john because it first has to pass the are democratic controlled senate, that seems unlikely although president obama has vowed to veto it. that's how the situation stance here john. >> thank you stephanie. a nobel peace prize winner is turning his attention to america's broken health care system and the people who have few options when it comes to affordable treatment. amanda price has that story. >> the gridlock in capitol hill,
8:34 pm
enter mohamed unis. his work to fight poverty through microfinance earned him the nobel peace price in 2006. what started as a single loan in bangladesh grew into a system used around the world. a model that helps groups of borrowers grow their earning power. in the u.s. alone, the bank he founded provided women with microloans, as they become more financially stable unforeseen costs still pose major risks. >> they are working so hard to make ends meet for their families and to gain a foothold for their businesses, health care and the costs associated to crisis are as everybody knows one of the main causes of bankruptcy. >> to address that unis and his
8:35 pm
team are launching a new initiative, first clinic in the u.s. will offer primary care for $10 a week and use health coaches instead of doctors and a better way to meet patient demand. >> more and more the notion of having a team approach where you have each trained health professional operating at the highest level of their training and if a message or support can be offered by someone with less formal training, that's a smart way of complementing the care that's provided by doctor and a nurse. >> researchers forecast the u.s. will need more than 50,000 additional doctors by 2025, a growing problem that has many people like mohamed unis looking for alternatives. amanda price, al jazeera. >> earlier this evening i had the privilege to speak with mohamed unis and i asked him how prima care works.
8:36 pm
>> this is to address the people who are left out of the health care system. even in the united states, there are millions of people who are outside. and particularly undocumented people and people who, even after obamacare, there are a lot of people who still don't get the insurance program. so we are addressing those people to see how to bring health care for them particularly primary health care and in a way that we have been practicing in bangladesh. not as an hav individual. you come as an individual to a doctor and these people are afraid to go anyplace you don't know where to go. emergency is the only place they can go and they don't know who to see, what to do. what we are trying to do is create an intermediary, a health coach, so real health provider to far as these people are concerned, is a health coach who
8:37 pm
helps them to take to the right kind of person so that you don't worry about where to go, how to do. >> talk a little bit about -- you say it's about covering cost not about making money. >> that's right. >> how does that work? >> the whole thing is to make it sustainable. it's not something that you want to make money out of this whole thing. whether you tend towards health care it's all about making money all about the hospital or the insurance and all that. and these people are left out of that system where somebody is trying to make profit out of that. and there's no charity program for them either. so we created, if it's a charity program then somebody has to pay for it. who's going to pay for that? so we thought the best thing is to have a self-sustaining program. taking out the personal profit into the picture. so we created this in a sustainable way, we'll be charging each person, if he -- something like 40, $45 per
8:38 pm
month. so we will be collecting this money in -- >> and that will cor cover all ? >> that will cover all cost. that is our charge, make sure you take care of that health care and also within the amount they can afford to give. >> you are the champion of microfinancing, is that where this comes from? >> when we started the microcredit, addressing the poor women giving them the loan, we found the other problem. poverty and poor health is a synonymous health. if you are poor you are poor in health. so you have to address these issues. you cannot walk away you say we lend the money so -- and then there aren't money and they take care of, then we try bring in health insurance for them. health insurance this we started out with, it was about $3 per
8:39 pm
family mere year. >> go back, how much? >> $3 per family per year. >> it doesn't seem possible. >> it is possible, when you think about 5,000 borrowers, if each one is paying $3 so you have $15,000 coming in. with that $15,000 you can build a whole health care program right there. so we do that. and it worked very well. so -- >> how do you control costs? because in this country, the rising cost of health care is one of the big problems. >> not only it's rising cost, it will continue to rise. it will become a very frustrating experience the way the whole structure is made. so we need to even address the bigger issue of health care in this country otherwise it will just -- >> for instance, the cost of a serious disease of cancer or heart transplant or major heart
8:40 pm
surgery could wipe out a family's savings, hundreds of thousands of dollars. >> anywhere that's possible. >> so translating that into your program -- >> and our program is basically primary health care because the government provides the health care in the medical system, in the health care system. when we have serious diseases then we connect them with the government hospital. our job is to provide. in the primary health care system that's our job. most of the health care system when you are dealing with bofort and all that basically is a primary health care issue, not the basic issues like that. >> could this be as groundbreaking as microfinance? >> should be, because when you cover the cost with 40, $45 per month, that is also challenge to us. we don't know yet. so we start with that and how to make it more efficient, how to address the issues in a way, in a discussion.
8:41 pm
more of an awareness generation, training of mind, you don't eat the way you do, you don't do the things you do, when you are pregnant you don't do this 1-2-3 things, this kind of stuff. >> health coach. >> health coach, that's where it comes, you're not bringing the doctor right away, you're bringing through the health coach the instructions, and you are not fiedin following the principles. that's how we manage that kind of thing. >> that was dr. mohamed unis with us earlier tonight. the obama administration is calling for tough rules to cut greenhouse gas emissions. affecting future coal and natural gas power plants. >> new power plants both natural gas and coal-fired can minimize their carbon emissions by taking
8:42 pm
