Humanizing Medicine - with Prof. Azim Jiwani and featuring Prof. David Nabarro CBE
The University of Bristol welcomes Azim Jiwani, Clinical Professor of the University of British Columbia, for a discussion on his book, Humanizing Medicine - Making Health Tangible: Memoirs with a Global Development Network.

The event will feature an appearance from David Nabarro CBE, Special Envoy on Covid-19 for the World Health Organization, and Strategic Director of 4SD.

Jiwani’s memoir focuses on building a sustainable culture for healthcare systems in Pakistan and Kenya, linking primary and community care alongside preventative health.

The author offers three paths to humanizing medicine. First, placing global health at the intersection of geopolitical discourse. The legacy of colonialism, poor governance, stark inequities, and shifting focus on our planetary health still need to be addressed. Second, focusing on sustainability, pluralist values, and ethics. Third, greater emphasis on training health workers through a pedagogy that encompasses ethics and scientifically sound care – underpinned by compassion.

The event is chaired by Theo Richardson-Gool, who works in impact for the University of Bristol’s MRC Integrative Epidemiology Unit. Co-founder and CEO of the education charity Public Health Pathways.
