Long Road from Quito

Transforming Health Care in Rural Latin America

by Tony Hiss

The book chronicles Gaus’s ground-breaking work to bring modern medicine to poor, rural communities in Ecuador. Gaus founded Andean Health and Development, with his mentor Rev. Theodore M. Hesburgh, C.S.C., which has grown into a major player in global health, frequently partnering with the World Health Organization and other international agencies.

“[David] Gaus’s journey from an accounting undergraduate to a medical doctor hailed as a hero in Ecuador, with Hesburgh as inspiration and partner, is recounted in the new book, Long Road from Quito, by journalist Tony Hiss.” —Notre Dame Magazine

"Creating health for underprivileged populations through education of family physicians, promotion of healthy behaviors, control of risk factors, disease prevention, and delivery of compassionate and comprehensive care: that is what Long Road from Quito: Transforming Health Care in Rural Latin America is all about, the captivating story of David Gaus and the Andean Health and Development Initiative. A must read for all those interested in health development around the world." —Julio Frenk, president of the University of Miami, former minister of health of Mexico
