Partners in Health is building a state of the art teaching medical facility in Mirebalais in Haiti’s underserved Central Plateau.
My niece Annie helped design the waste and water treatment parts of the project as part of her engineering internship with Northeastern University, and and will be joining the Partners group upon graduation. It’s so inspiring to see this wonderful project coming to fruition and to know that she will be a part of it!
Partners in Health was founded by Paul Farmer and colleagues in 1987 to serve the poor in Haiti. Farmer’s story is the subject of Tracy Kidder’s book Mountains Beyond Mountains: The Quest of Dr. Paul Farmer, a Man Who Would Cure the World.
