Activism through Action

What is the Global Day of Action?

Everyone who knew Dr. Paul Farmer remembers he believed in taking action. We hope to celebrate and honor Paul—and the vision he inspired through Partners In Health—each year by coming together on his birthday, October 26, and using this time to recommit to our work and to focus our efforts to drive forward our collective vision for health equity.
