Looking Past Quarantine to Community Health

Funded by: Open Society Foundations

In between trips to Liberia, Dr. Paul Farmer of Partners In Health visited Open Society Foundation’s offices to discuss his work on Ebola. OSF produced a series of videos featuring experts on the ground who share their wisdom about the current health crisis, and what can and must be done to stop it. Dr Farmer talked about the need to ensure sustainable health systems for people in nations where the virus has spread, explaining that if there had been strong healthcare systems in Guinea, Liberia, and Sierra Leone, Ebola would not be the epidemic it is, particularly in terms of the rampant death rate.
