The Pfizer "Moments in Leadership" Distinguished Health Leadership Speaker Series presents this talk and reception featuring Dr. Paul Farmer, recipient of the 2009 UC Berkeley International Public Health Hero Award.

Using the framework of human right to health, Dr. Farmer will speak about:
-Community-based care to improve health outcomes in settings of great poverty
--Disease specific interventions to strengthen primary health care

Dr. Farmer is the Maude and Lillian Presley Professor in the Department of Global Health and Social Medicine at Harvard Medical School, and a founding director of Partners In Health, an international nonprofit organization that provides direct health care services and undertakes research and advocacy activities on behalf of those who are sick and living in poverty. Dr. Farmers work draws primarily on active clinical practice and focuses on community-based treatment strategies for diseases that disproportionately afflict the poor, health and human rights, and about the role of social inequalities in determining the distribution and outcomes of infectious diseases.
