The deeply personal, and political, story of an extraordinary doctor, now in paperback

About the Author

Dr. James Orbinski is a Research Scientist and Associate Professor of Family and Community Medicine and Political Science at St. Michael's Hospital and the University of Toronto. He is also a founder of the Drugs for Neglected Diseases Initiative, a not-for-profit pharmaceutical research and development entity focused on the diseases of the South. He recently founded Dignitas, based in Malawi, an organization focused on community based treatment, care and prevention of HIV in the developing world. He lives in Canada but travels widely.


He tells his extraordinary story in unpretentious, carefully weighed prose * Observer *
Fascinating * Daily Mail *
James Orbinski has lived for years in the middle of the worst that humans can be, and somehow emerged with both his compassion and his desire to understand us intact...the stories he has to tell are some of the most powerful I have ever read * Stephanie Nolen, author of 28: Stories of AIDS in Africa *
In a narrative of grace and power, [Orbinski] displays the intense components of his remarkable life: integrity, compassion and principle * Stephen Lewis, former UN Special Envoy for HIV/AIDS in Africa and author of Race Against Time *
An essential text for our dire times. Orbinski plunges into the heartbreak, the maelstrom, the moral dilemmas of the genocide territories of the world - Rwanda, Kosovo, Sudan - and finds there enough courage and redemption for us all to feel there is hope for our sad humanity. * Ariel Dorfman *
