This Global Health Compassion Rounds webinar will highlight lived experiences of compassion through powerful stories of 'compassion in action' shared by invited speakers from Burkina Faso, Pakistan, the Democratic Republic of Congo, and Sri Lanka. We will connect with these compassionate individuals, representing diverse sectors in global health, to learn how compassion is embodied and enacted. The discussion that follows will spark new thinking on how to scale up compassion at all levels - from the individual, to the community, to the health system - with a particular focus on the delivery of quality health services.

Our focus on human interactions can inform us on the mechanisms through which compassion can be cultivated and shed light on how to tap into the contagious nature of compassion.

** What are Global Health Compassion Rounds?


The Rounds are a quarterly gathering of a global community to share experiences, challenge ideas, and spark thinking on compassion in global health. We explore the role of compassion in health systems, policy, programs, and service delivery. Each webinar centers on a specific theme that features insights and perspectives from practitioners in the field, subject matter experts, scholars, and contemplative thinkers. We invite you to join our growing community!
