Forbes CEO Mike Federle interviews medical anthropologist Paul Farmer at the eighth annual Forbes Healthcare Summit in New York City in 2019. In the one-on-one conversation before an audience of CEOs, scientists, doctors, patients and venture capitalists, Farmer reflected on the work of Partners In Health, which began in 1987 in Haiti. Last year the organization's clinics, now established in ten countries, conducted a million women's health checkups, among other services. More than 90% of maternal deaths occur in developing nations.

"If you look at any of the places where we've been lucky enough to work," Farmer said, "in every instance mortality has decreased and well-being has gone up...You need more than the government and established institutions to get these things to people who live in extreme poverty. We can't do our work without private philanthropy."
