San Francisco Chronicle Profiles Partners in Health's Paul Farmer, New HIV/AIDS Treatment Program in Rwanda

May 16, 2005

The San Francisco Chronicle on Saturday profiled Paul Farmer, a Harvard University professor and co-founder of Partners in Health, and a new HIV/AIDS treatment program he is helping to operate in Rwanda. Farmer -- who has worked in Haiti, Peru, Russia and Boston -- "has set a standard for the care of AIDS and tuberculosis among the poor and dispossessed," according to the Chronicle. Last month, Farmer with the Clinton Foundation launched the program to deliver rural health care and HIV/AIDS treatment to remote areas of Eastern Rwanda. The program site is "fertile ground" for Farmer's "brand of medicine," a "system that assumes health care is a human right" and relies on community health care workers to deliver it, according to the Chronicle. Farmer was in the San Francisco area to deliver the commencement address at the University of California-Berkeley School of Public Health and receive an award from Global Exchange, a San Francisco-based human rights advocacy group (Russell, San Francisco Chronicle, 5/14).
