Inviting Contributions on the Theme of “Paul Farmer’s Legacy”

Paul Farmer 1959-2022

In memory and celebration of our Editor-in-Chief Paul Farmer, we invite contributions to an online collection that honors his legacy in global health, human rights, equality and dignity.

We welcome personal reflections, comments on Paul’s work and writing, and commentaries on the ways in which Paul shaped global health. Essays are encouraged that look to the future and anticipate Paul’s legacy in promoting health and human rights. Paul worked as a clinician, a medical anthropologist, a professor, an NGO leader, and a humanitarian. We anticipate the collection will cover any and all of these endeavours, and like his work, will keep human rights to the fore.

All contributions will be reviewed for suitability by the editors. Contributors are encouraged to be creative in their responses, with the editors being open to photographs, poems, or other artistic expressions. Essays should be 1500-3000 words.

The collection will become a permanent testament to Paul and his work and remain available as part of the Journal’s archive.
