Paul Farmer: On COVID Shockers, Vaccine Disparities, Nagging the White House, and Next-Gen Physicians
For more than thirty years, Paul Farmer has been a pivotal figure in global public health. Partners In Health, the nonprofit he cofounded as a medical student in 1987 along with Ophelia Dahl and Jim Yong Kim, today has 18,000 staff and delivers basic health care to people across three continents. His writings, which draw on his experiences as a clinician and medical anthropologist and make arguments of crystalline moral clarity, have shaped generations of students.
