Maria Rebollo speaks about following your heart to change humanity

I believe that in every situation you have to follow your heart and do the best that you can. I am working with the people who need to hear the public health message the most. When they understand, a domino affect of love happens. Compassionate global health can trigger a revolution of love. I care [...]

Jonathan Rout speaks to David Addiss about Compassionate Service

When I learned about LF morbidity management I jumped into leg washing. Without any hesitation, I was trained by Dr. Shenoy and Dr. Leanne Fox and began the leg washing programs in 2005. Doctors from the local hospitals suggested that we must use gloves when washing the legs of patients. But for me the gloves [...]

Henry Blumberg on compassion, the GHRSP, and having fun

Emory residents and fellows (as part of the Global Health Residency Scholars Program) return from Ethiopia saying, “This is the best thing I’ve done in my residency.” So now we are asking ourselves, do the residents actually become more compassionate through their global health work? Does this compassion wear out after a few months or [...]

LeAnne Fox on alleviating suffering in LF morbidity

Compassion speaks to our common humanity. We are all vulnerable to disease and don’t want anyone to suffer from something that can be prevented or treated. In global health we prevent suffering by preventing disease, and alleviate suffering through care and treatment of disease. When I am working with individuals with lymphedema and elephantiasis, I [...]

Rob Breiman speaks about uniting science with compassion

For many of us that have been involved in global health for a long time, the word ‘compassion’ may be a little hard to get your arms around. It underpins everything we do, but we don’t really think about it that way. I don’t personally go through exercises to try and remind myself to be [...]

Steve Blount on compassion, global health, and social justice

None of us would be here unless one person had cared for us when we couldn’t care for ourselves. The biological basis for our continuity as a species is love and caring in a selfless way. We all have that. We’ve all seen that. We can tap into how we have benefited from someone else [...]

I talked with women while they washed dishes, washed clothes, and made tortillas. Every activity required water.  Each day we talked about how much easier life would be if they didn’t have to go down to the river to fetch water, which was about two kilometers away at the bottom of the dunes.  The women [...]
