“What I’m most interested in is getting good outcomes for poor people,” Dr. Paul Farmer, co-founder of Partners in Health, the organization that has delivered healthcare to millions throughout the world, especially in Haiti, said Sunday at Coral Gables Congregational Church.
Farmer discussed his latest book, To Repair The World, with Haitian award-winning author Edwige Danticat. Farmer told a standing-room-only crowd of hundreds that correcting the global inequities in healthcare starts by collaborating with local partners and raising the bar on expectations.
Quoting the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr, Farmer also implored people to get involved: “Everyone can be great because they can serve.”
