TED Prize

Paul Farmer on Rwanda

Posted by: Tedconfamy

farmer_paul.jpgThis year at TED, TED Prize winner Bill Clinton wished for us to partner with his foundation, the Rwandan government, and Partners in Health to build a sustainable, high-quality rural health system for the whole country. The pilot clinic in the Rwandan district of Rwinkwavu has been a proven success and there is a lot of TED energy going into scaling the system out to the next four districts. There’s a great piece in Forbes today where Paul Farmer, founder of Partners in Health, explains a bit about the project and what led them to Rwanda.

    This is what is needed. Solutions that work on the ground.
