Big Decisions: Dr. Paul Farmer
On this episode of Bloomberg Big Decisions, David Westin sits down with Dr Paul Farmer – medical anthropologist and infectious disease doctor. He discusses ow the idea of charity was first instilled in him as a young man, and how it led to a career dedicated to it, with a focus on medical science. His early exposure to Haitian migrant farm workers in Florida, and the Ebola crisis in West Africa today, compel him to dedicate his life to improving health care for the world’s poorest people. He helped establish Boston-based non-profit health care organisation Partners in Health.
In this episode, Farmer discusses needs across the global health community; investment into preventing but also treating epidemics; gaps in modern care; and how to build health systems that work.
