Dr. Paul Farmer, photographed in 2017 at a screening of a film about his life's work, Bending the Arc.Dr. Paul Farmer, global health champion, Harvard Medical School professor, anthropologist and co-founder of the nonprofit health organization Partners in Health, has died at age 62. A source close to Farmer said he had been in Rwanda for the past several weeks teaching at the University of Global Health Equity, the medical school that he helped found with the country's former minister of health, Dr. Agnes Binagwaho. He visited Haiti, a country where his group has worked to improve health care, in the aftermath of Hurricane Matthew in 2016."Paul Farmer's loss is devastating, but his vision for the world will live on through Partners in Health. Writer Tracy Kidder profiled Farmer in his 2003 book, Mountains Beyond Mountains: The Quest of Dr. Paul Farmer, a Man Who Would Cure the World, which later became required reading for many a student and practitioner in global health. There are a lot of people who thought it could not be done," says Dzau.Farmer came up with creative ways to make it work, enlisting local community health workers to provide care traditionally only offered by doctors. I worked at @PIH, I once asked Paul Farmer what had kept him in global health when so many people become disillusioned or burned out.His answer -- "Doing hard things with friends" -- embodied the ethos of @PIH and has stuck with me throughout my career.
