really liked it
Read in January, 2008

I highly recommend Paul Farmer in general. This book's thesis is that the infections are worse where poverty is worse. And that basically public health is not merely an issue of behavior but one tied very strongly to environments and conditions made possible by the way wealth and power are distributed. It does get a bit redundant and definitely nihilistic like Sheper-Hughes but non-fiction nevertheless.
