2022 World Day of the Sick

On this year's World Day of the Sick, we are bringing together international experts and thought leaders to discuss some of the emerging impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on the health care workforce: burn-out, fatigue and withdrawal. Looking beyond the diagnosis, the panel will explore what solutions are possible and which are grounded in the core principles of dignity, solidarity and the Common Good.
