The Fauci Documentary from National Geographic is Coming to Disney+ This Fall

The Fauci Documentary from National Geographic is Coming to Disney+ This Fall. Hearing the name “Fauci” elicits a variety of reactions from people around the world, and since the COVID-19 pandemic hit The United States of America in late 2019-early 2020 there has hardly been a science or medical-based conversation in the news about the pandemic that didn’t involve the mention of Chief Medical Advisor to the President, Dr. Anthony Fauci.

Now, National Geographic is giving viewers a chance to dive deeper into who Dr. Fauci is and what his job has entailed through both the 80’s surge in SARS and now the COVID-19 Pandemic in their new documentary titled Fauci. A synopsis of the documentary reads; “The career and life of Dr. Anthony Fauci, the public servant who has advised seven U.S. presidents beginning with the AIDS pandemic in the 1980s and through SARS, Ebola and now Covid-19.

According to Whats on Disney Plus‘ more detailed synopsis, “A world-renowned infectious disease specialist, Dr. Fauci has valiantly led the U.S. fight against every epidemic our country has faced over the past 50 years, from AIDS to SARS to Ebola, and now, COVID-19. The longest-serving public health leader in Washington, Dr. Fauci has worked under seven presidents and is revered on both sides of the aisle. He has testified before Congress — with his trademark Brooklyn accent — more than any other person in American history. Through intimate interviews, Dr. Fauci will take us on a journey through his remarkable career, with a particular focus on HIV/AIDS — from the dark years when there was no treatment and little funding to the advent of triple therapy, and his efforts to bring cutting-edge medications to sub-Saharan Africa through the development of The President’s Emergency Plan For AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), which has saved more than 18 million lives since 2003.

But the man America has come to know and trust over this past year was forged even earlier: during his childhood in Brooklyn working at his father’s pharmacy, by his rigorous Jesuit education at Regis High School and Holy Cross College that instilled in him a sense of duty to others, and in the endless night shifts during his residency at New York Hospital.

The film will also feature the voices of many of those who have influenced him, and whom he has worked alongside — and for — including President George W. Bush, Bill Gates, Bono, former HHS Secretary Sylvia Burwell, former national security advisor Susan Rice, NIH director Dr. Francis Collins, former CDC director Dr. Tom Frieden, key AIDS activists and organizers, and many others, including his family, friends and former patients.
