Publisher’s Description: 

Doctor and social activist Paul Farmer shares a collection of charismatic short speeches that aims to inspire the next generation. One of the most passionate and influential voices for global health equity and social justice, Farmer encourages young people to tackle the greatest challenges of our times. Engaging, often humorous, and always inspiring, these speeches bring to light the brilliance and force of Farmers vision in a single, accessible volume.

A must-read for graduates, students, and everyone seeking to help bend the arc of history toward justice, To Repair the World:
  • challenges readers to counter failures of imagination that keep billions of people without access to health care, safe drinking water, decent schools, and other basic human rights
  • champions the power of partnership against global poverty, climate change, and other pressing problems today
  • overturns common assumptions about health disparities around the globe by considering the large-scale social forces that determine who gets sick and who has access to health care
  • discusses how hope, solidarity, faith, and hardbitten analysis have animated Farmers service to the poor in Haiti, Peru, Rwanda, Russia, and elsewhere
  • leaves the reader with an uplifting vision: that with creativity, passion, teamwork, and determination, the next generations can make the world a safer and more humane place.
