If you haven’t read Mountains Beyond Mountains by Tracey Kidder, you should.
This is the story of Dr. Paul Farmer, one doctor who set a revolution in motion for the improvement of health care in the darkest corners of human society. The places the average American does not hear about because the authorities don’t want us to see it. With the help of an extraordinary team dedicated to Farmer’s cause, they bring light to the most impoverished cities run rampant with TB– Lima,Peru; Siberia, Russia; and of course, the village of Cange in Haiti. The author, Kidder, chronicles Farmer’s journey to change the world and to help patients everywhere.
