Paul Farmer, one of the most prominent voices in global health today and the founder of Partners in Health, and Stephen R. Sullivan, plastic surgeon at Brown University Alpert Medical School, proclaim that Catherine R. deVries and Raymond R. Price's new book entitled Global Surgery and Public Health: A New Paradigm “is precisely what is needed to move surgery into its proper role as a cornerstone of global public health rather than . . . its neglected stepchild.”
