On January 12, 2010, a massive earthquake laid waste to Port-au-Prince, Haiti, killing hundreds of thousands of people. In this vivid narrative, Dr. Paul Farmer, who has worked in Haiti for nearly thirty years, describes the earthquake's impact on that country, both as he experienced working as a physician in the days and weeks immediately after the event, and over the subsequent years, when he and his colleagues worked along with the UN to marshal international support for Haiti's recovery efforts and to "build back better." Complementing Farmer's account are compelling essays by other colleagues, clinicians, volunteers, survivors, and friends offering additional perspective on Haiti before and after the earthquake.
