As you probably know Dr. Paul Farmer died recently. He dedicated his life (October 26 1959 - February 21 2022) to providing health care for people in the world's poorest country (Haiti).  Gates Notes (4m 06s) is a small collection of clips from interviews "to give you a sense of what he was like and why his patients and colleagues loved him so much."

Farmer was one of the founders of the noted health organization Partners in Health (PiH), which serves the poorest of the poor.

The Wiki entry at the top includes many details about him and the work he chose to do.
