We are very excited to announce that Dr. Paul Farmer will deliver the closing keynote address on that day.As co-founder of Partners In Health (PIH) and Chair of the Global Health and Social Medicine Department at Harvard Medical School, Dr. Farmer is one of the world’s leading thinkers on health and human rights and the consequences of social inequality. His other roles include Chief, Division of Global Health Equity, Brigham and Women’s Hospital, and United Nations Deputy Special Envoy for Haiti. A recipient of the MacArthur Foundation “genius award,” his work is the subject of Tracy Kidder’s 2003 book Mountains Beyond Mountains: The Quest of Dr. Paul Farmer, A Man Who Would Cure the World.

    Paul Farmer is uniquely qualified to deliver this speech. His approach to health care brings both health and a road to peace by addressing health in the context of social issues associated with poverty.
