Gunisha Kaur, assistant professor of medicine at Weill Cornell Medicine and medical director at the Weill Cornell Center for Human Rights, wrote a tribute to Paul Farmer. The following is an excerpt from TIME:

“With his radical approach and generosity of spirit, he trailblazed a pathway for global health to be a social justice movement. Through his own work, and through the continued work of his students, he improved the life and wellbeing of countless patients across the world. As a testament to how universally beloved he was, from patients to trainees to colleagues, Dr. Farmer was the godfather to more than 100 children, most of them in Haiti.”
