By Monica Brady-Myerov in WBUR

Boston-based Partners In Health got its start in 1987, when Paul Farmer and Ophelia Dahl helped set up a one-room clinic in Cange, Haiti. Over the past quarter-century, the nonprofit has grown to serve almost 2.5 million people in countries such as Rwanda, Peru and Haiti.As Partners In Health marks its 25th anniversary, Dahl and Farmer—two of the original five founders—talked to Here & Now about the organization, and how their experiences have informed their view of the U.S. health care system.
