Stunningly sad loss. What a force for progress and decency in this world. Servant. Teacher. A warrior for the too often neglected. Singular giant. RIP, Paul Farmer. https://t.co/IXP5UbgXHn

When I worked at @PIH, I once asked Paul Farmer what had kept him in global health when so many people become disillusioned or burned out.

I can almost single-handedly point to Dr. Paul Farmer as the reason I got involved in public health, having had the privilege of volunteering at several @PIH clinics Haiti/DR.
May his legacy remind us of outsized role that poverty and structural violence have on people’s health. https://t.co/wT77YgDhSU
