Access to Global Public Health

April 19, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am CDT

A virtual conversation with

Dr. Joel M. Mubiligi 

Executive Director, Inshuti Mu Buzima/Partners in Health, Rwanda

Register in advance

Dr. Paul Farmer, a founder of Partners in Health (PIH), died earlier this spring.  To honor his impact and vision, this event highlights one of many global health professionals who carry forward that same commitment of public health for poor and underserved communities around the world. 

As Executive Director of PIH affiliate Inshuti Mu Buzima,  Dr. Joel M. Mubiligi leads a team of over 200+ people tasked with improving the quality of care provided to patients in oncology, chronic disease, mental health, surgery, maternal, neonatal, adolescent, and child health by developing equitable, scalable, and patient-centered innovations in these clinical areas. He also serves as adjunct faculty and a member of the board of directors of the University of Global Health Equity, a PIH initiative that equips future physicians with the clinical knowledge and skills needed to effectively implement innovative public health solutions, lead and manage equitable health systems, and improve the delivery of care in rural communities.

Moderated by Doug Savage (Director, Institute of World Affairs)

A complimentary copy of the book, Mountains Beyond Mountains: The Quest of Dr. Paul Farmer: A Man Who Would Cure the World by Tracy Kidder (Random house, 2004) is available to the first 25 individuals who both register and attend the April 19 event.

Cosponsored by the College of Nursing, the Center for Global Health Equity, the Institute of World Affairs (Center for International Education-CIE), Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies (CLACS), and the Zilber School of Public Health, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.  CLACS and CIE are Title VI National Resource Centers funded by the U.S. Department of Education.
