Public Panel: “Accompaniment—Transforming the Paradigm for Aid Delivery”


This panel features Paul Farmer, chief strategist and cofounder of Partners In Health (PIH), Abbey Gardner, senior adviser to Farmer’s Aid Delivery Support Initiative, and Jéhane Sedky, senior adviser to Farmer’s UN Office. Panelists will draw from their extensive experience in international development to address how accompaniment can serve as a model for rethinking foreign assistance. Speaking to challenges of inefficiency and inequity in international aid delivery, they address how accompaniment informs the implementation of foreign aid at every level, from development practitioners on the ground to financing and support by governments and public institutions.
