“[Partners In Health] made it harder to say…that certain things can’t be done," writes Yale professor Haun Saussy in his introduction to Partner to the Poor, a collection of writings by PIH co-founder Paul Farmer. "Once something can be done, then that raises the ethical obligation that you should do it.”
University of California press recently interviewed Paul and Haun about PIH acheivements and the organization's continuing efforts to treat illness by addressing the social and structural factors that contribute to it. Paul also addresses post-earthquake Haiti and the role of international NGO's like Partners In Health in helping Haiti rebuild. Listen to the interview on a podcast from the University of California Press's blog.
