Amazon.com: Mountains Beyond Mountains: The Quest of Dr. Paul Farmer, a Man Who Would Cure the World eBook: Tracy Kidder: Kindle Store For Free ⣜ Book By Tracy Kidder ⤵ Adult High School Thought provoking and profoundly satisfying, this book will inspire feelings of humility, admiration, and disquietude in some readers, it may sow the seeds of humanitarian activism As a specialist in infectious diseases, Farmer s goal is nothing less than redressing the steep gradient of inequality in medical service to the desperately poor His work establishing a complex of public health facilities on the central plateau of Haiti forms the keystone to efforts that now encompass initiatives on three continents Farmer and a trio of friends began in the 1980s by creating a charitable foundation called Partners in Health PIH, or Zanmi Lasante in Creole , armed with passionate conviction and 1 million in seed money from a Boston philanthropist Kidder provides anecdotal evidence that their early approach to acquiring resources for the Haitian project at times involved a Robin Hood type of redistributive justice by liberating medical equipment from the rich Harvard and giving to the poor the PIH clinic Yet even as PIH has grown in size and sophistication, gaining the ability to influence and collaborate with major international organizations because of the founders energy, professional credentials, and successful outcomes, their dedicated vision of doctoring to the poor remains unaltered Farmer s conduct is offered as a road map to decency, albeit an uncompromising model that nearly defies replication This story is remarkable, and Kidder s skill in sequencing both dramatic and understated elements into a reflective commentary is unsurpassed.Lynn Nutwell, Fairfax City Regional Library, VACopyright Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc All rights reserved.Paul Farmer is a 44 year old specialist in infectious diseases and an attending physician at the Brigham and Women s Hospital in Boston His biographer, Tracy Kidder, read his book on the connections between poverty and disease Infections and Inequalities and wrote to him, I m reading your oeuvre Ah, but that s not my oeuvre, Farmer replied To see my oeuvre you have to come to Haiti Indeed, Farmer founded a hospital and health center, Zanmi Lasante, in Cange, Haiti, hours from the capital and at the end of a gutted road in a region destitute even by Haiti s standards, as part of an extensive community based health network linked to a hospital, Clinique Bon Sauveur see Figure For than 20 years, Farmer has spent many months every year there, often taking care of patients himself and continually improving the treatments offered by the clinic These now include antiretroviral drugs Lasante is supported by a foundation based in Boston called Partners in Health, which is headed by Ophelia Dahl and largely financed by Tom White, the philanthropic owner of a large Boston construction firm There is Through his patients in Cange, Farmer became interested in multidrug resistant tuberculosis From Haiti, he exported treatment of multidrug resistant tuberculosis to Peru and then to Siberia, achieving cure rates comparable to those in the United States Through the Institute for Health and Social Justice the research and education division of Partners in Health and his associate Jim Yong Kim, he started a movement to lower prices for the second line drugs necessary to treat resistant tuberculosis and successfully lobbied the World Health Organization for changes in treatment recommendations for tuberculosis Readers may have heard some of this story before Farmer has received a MacArthur award and the American Medical Association s Dr Nathan Davis Award and may have wondered, as I did, where he came from and how one man could accomplish so much Kidder traces Farmer s trajectory, starting with his unconventional childhood, which included living in a bus and on a leaky boat He was given a scholarship to Duke, where he majored in anthropology and worked alongside poor Haitian farm workers in North Carolina s tobacco fields After graduation he spent a year in Haiti, where he met Ophelia Dahl, and then went to Harvard Medical School While in medical school and during his residencies and fellowships, he spent time in Cange than in Boston How does Farmer do it Kidder provides some explanations he works nonstop, hardly sleeps, sees his wife and child for a day or so every few months, inspires an uncommon degree of devotion and enthusiasm among collaborators and potential donors, and tolerates planes and airports for days on end In addition, the Boston medical establishment has bent rules and regulations to accommodate his needs Convincing Maybe There remains something miraculous about Paul Farmer Should one go out and buy Mountains beyond Mountains By all means Not only it is it an enjoyable book, but it is also very likely that a part of the 25.95 spent in purchasing it will find its way back to Haiti That is than can be said about many books In addition, readers looking for a worthwhile charity to support may be inspired to send some money to Partners in Health Bernard Hirschel, M.D.Copyright 2003 Massachusetts Medical Society All rights reserved The New England Journal of Medicine is a
