Paul Farmer is a medical anthropologist and physician whose life’s work has focused on improving the health care conditions of the world’s poorest people. His lifelong commitment to health care and advocacy began in 1983 while he was a student working with dispossessed farmers in Haiti’s Central Plateau. In 1987, Dr. Farmer became one of the founders of international non-profit Partners in Health which provides direct health care services and advocates on behalf of those who are sick and living in property. Since it’s roots are in Haiti, Partners in Health has expanded operations to twelve sites within Haiti and twelve countries around the globe. Their work has become a model for high-quality health care delivery in resource-poor settings. Currently, Dr. Farmer holds an M.D and PhD. from Harvard University, where he is the Kolokotrones University Professor and the Chair of the Department of Global Health and Social Medicine at Harvard Medical School; he is also the chief of the Division of Global Health Equity at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Boston. Dr. Farmer is also the United Nations Special Adviser to the Secretary-General on Community Based Medicine and Lessons from Haiti. In addition, Dr. Farmer has authored several books on health, human rights, and the consequences of social inequality. His most recent book is Reimaging Global Health: An Introduction. Paul Farmer is also the recipient of numerous honors, including the Margaret Mead Award from the American Anthropological Association, and, with his PHI colleagues, the Hilton Humanitarian Prize.
