People need to know this Dr. Farmer and his work.
He is Dr. Paul Farmer is close to Mother Teresa in his work to help the poor across the world, but mostly in Haiti. He not only is a doctor but he also specialized in anthropology so he has an unique view of the world and a special place in his heart for the poor.
Because of this and his work in one of the poorest regions of Haiti (which qualifies as one of the poorest places in the world) he helped create cures for TB and many other diseases.
He worked locally in Haiti and in Boston as a doctor, flying back and forth. PLUS, the would speak all over the world about ways to improve the health care system for the poor. He was the “go to” guy for the World Health Organization (WHO) on many topics but also for many other global organizations.
He created clinics in Peru, worked with the Russian prison system, and so much more.
This is a piece of history more people should know about. Loved this book.
Highly recommend this one.
