“How can you not love this job?”
One of my heroes, the late Dr. Paul Farmer, in his own words.

In February of this year, the global-health community experienced a huge loss when Dr. Paul Farmer died. As I wrote at the time, Paul was a hero of mine, and I felt lucky to consider him a friend too. Few people have done more to serve the cause of global health equity, which is one of the reasons I’m donating my proceeds from my new book to his organization Partners in Health.

Shortly after his death, I came across a series of audio interviews with Paul. I loved hearing him talk about why his work was so important to him. It was the next best thing to hanging out with him one last time.

The interviews were so moving that I wanted to make a video featuring Paul in his own words, along with some photographs that show his incredible connection to Haiti, the country where he worked the most. In these recordings, you can hear Paul speaking with the quiet moral certainty that continues to inspire me and many other people around the world. I hope the spirit of his work lives on for generations.
