Dialogue on the Impact of Compassion in Global Health

On September 16-17, 2010, ten leaders in global health met at the Carter Center in Atlanta to consider the importance and impact of compassion in global health. They shared personal stories about the role of compassion in their own work and considered how compassion tends to be overlooked in the increasingly complex and rapidly changing field of global health.
