What is the thesis for Dokte Paul in Mountains Beyond Mountains?

I was thinking something along the lines of "treat others the way you want to be treated" or "do for others as they do for you," but I'm not sure.

I'm sure Dokte Paul would agree with that sentiment, but I think we can focus it more. Paul Farmer believes that everyone in the world deserves the same treatment, and, especially, that there is great good in helping the sick and the poor who need it most.
