What are the best public health documentaries to watch next after Pandemic?

As bad as it sounds, we're in the midst of the coronavirus outbreak now referred to as COVID-19. As news on the epidemic garners even more global attention, Netflix decided to release a very timely documentary. "Pandemic: How to Prevent an Outbreak" provides perspective on the flu outbreaks throughout history. Aside from that, it also discusses the risk that comes with another flu pandemic. Now, the coronavirus isn't technically a flu virus but there are many similarities. Given the nature of the viral outbreak, many people are looking for other movies about health. There are a lot of public health documentaries that explore these topics and they've been around since the dawn of films. The very first long-form documentary was released in 1922 which was titled "Nanook of the North." Afterward, other films that focused on important facts rather than make-believe stories began to surface. The documentary film genre remains a favorite for people who are interested in learning something new. Pandemic is an excellent example of this.
