Summary
For nearly thirty years, anthropologist and physician Paul Farmer has traveled to some of the most impoverished places on earth to bring comfort and the best possible medical care to the poorest of the poor. Driven by his stated intent to 'make human rights substantial', Farmer has treated sufferers of AIDS and drug-resistant tuberculosis in Haiti, Peru, Siberia, and Rwanda. In 1989, with several colleagues, he founded Partners In Health to provide high-quality care with impressive cure rates. Throughout his career, Farmer has written eloquently and extensively on these efforts. "Partner to the Poor" collects his writings from 1988 to 2009 on anthropology, epidemiology, health care for the global poor, and international public health policy, providing a broad overview of his work. It illuminates the depth and impact of Farmer's contributions and demonstrates how, over time, this unassuming and dedicated doctor has fundamentally changed the way we think about health, international aid, and social justice. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this book will be donated to Partners In Health
