Personal Fact of Paul Farmer

Paul Edward Farmer is an anthropologist and physician renowned for his efforts to provide the highest quality of medical facilities to impoverished people living in developing countries. He is a humanitarian who believes that human beings, irrespective of where they live have the right to have access to the best quality medical care. A brilliant student in school, he won a full scholarship to Duke University, North Carolina where he took up a course in medical anthropology. At Duke’s he had the fortune of studying under the famed anthropologist Claude Levi-Strauss. His concern for the impoverished people began when he started touring the North Carolina tobacco plantations where he observed the pathetic state of Haitian migrant workers.

Determined to help the people of Haiti, he co-founded Partners In Health a non-profit health care organization which aimed at bringing the benefits of modern medical science to those who really needed them. The organization which was first started in Boston to help Haitians has now become a world wide organization dedicated to the cause of bringing medical facilities to impoverished people.

He has written numerous books on medical science and is currently the Kolokotrones University Professor at Harvard University. He has also served as United Nations Secretary-General’s Special Adviser for Community-based Medicine and Lessons from Haiti.
