Paul Farmer在全球健康领域的研究,写作和应用工作引起了对结构性暴力概念的极大关注。作为一名人类学家和医生,Farmer博士几十年来一直在这个领域工作,利用结构性暴力的视角来展示财富积累的巨大差异与世界各地医疗保健和结果的相关差异之间的联系。他的工作来自公共卫生和人权的交叉点,他是哈佛大学Kolokotrones大学全球健康和社会医学教授。 Farmer博士共同创立了健康伙伴组织,这是一个旨在改善弱势群体和不成比例疾病社区可预防的负面健康结果的国际组织。为什么世界上一些最贫穷的国家也是最严重的?答案是结构性暴力。 20世纪80年代中期,Farmer and Partners in Health开始在海地工作,但该组织已经扩展到全球多个地点和项目。与结构性暴力和健康有关的项目包括:2010年海地地震的后果。俄罗斯监狱中的结核病流行病。 1994年种族灭绝事件后重建卢旺达的医疗保健系统。海地和莱索托的艾滋病毒/艾滋病干预措施


Paul Farmer’s research, writing, and applied work in the field of global health has brought significant attention to the concept of structural violence. An anthropologist and physician, Dr. Farmer has worked in this field for decades, using the lens of structural violence to show the connections between vast differences in wealth accumulation and related disparities in health care and outcomes around the world. His work emerges from the intersections of public health and human rights, and he is the Kolokotrones University Professor of Global health and Social Medicine at Harvard University. Dr. Farmer co-founded Partners in Health, an international organization that aims to improve preventable negative health outcomes in disadvantaged – and disproportionately ill – communities. Why is it at some of the world’s poorest countries are also the sickest? The answer is structural violence. Farmer and Partners in Health began working in Haiti in the mid-1980s, but the organization has since expanded to multiple sites and projects around the world. Projects related to structural violence and health include: The aftermath of the 2010 earthquake in Haiti.  Tuberculosis epidemics in Russian prisons. Reconstructing Rwanda’s health care system after the 1994 genocide. HIV/AIDS interventions in Haiti and Lesotho
