UGHE Announces The Passing of Chancellor Professor Paul Farmer

It is with deep sorrow that we announce the passing of our beloved Chancellor, Professor Paul Farmer who was the Founder of Partners In Health (PIH) and the University of Global Health Equity (UGHE), which occurred today. He has been an inspiration for most of us at UGHE.

This is so sudden, an unimaginable catastrophe to all of us, and the global health community as a whole.

A life so beautifully lived deserves to be beautifully remembered. Please join us to mourn the passing of our beloved role model, our leader, our dearest friend, and our Muganga Mwiza.

We extend our deepest condolences to his family, his colleagues at Partners In Health and the UGHE Family. We request for your prayers as we go through this difficult time.

For any information, please contact Mr Rogers Muragije, the Deputy Vice Chancellor, Administrative and

Financial Affairs, Phone: 0788301025, E-mail: [email protected]
