In Rwanda, visionary doctor is moving mountains again
Boston Globe, April 14, 2008
In November 2004, Paul Farmer, MD, agreed to bring his world-renowned Partners in Health model to Rwanda. With the help of the Rwandan Ministry of Health and the Clinton Foundation, Farmer went into Rwinkwavu with American and Rwandan workers and rebuilt a "hospital" that consisted of derelict buildings. This is just one example of how Farmer and the organization has helped rebuild communities by treating poverty as well as disease. Now 20 years old, Partners in Health has expanded to nine countries.
