5 Video Conferences on:

“Accompanying Health Care Workers
in the Context of the Covid-19 Pandemic”

June 8, 9 and 10, 2021

The health emergency caused by the Covid-19 pandemic has greatly stressed, at times to the point of exhaustion, health care workers. Engaged in their service on the front lines of this emergency, health workers and other health actors have been and continue to be exposed to high levels of stress.

In the face of the alarming threat to their health, we are all called, just like the Good Samaritan, to make ourselves available as neighbors; to become a community of men and women who make the fragility of others their own concern, for the sake of the common good (cf. Fratelli Tutti, n. 67). 

Seeking to actualize this essential aim, the Dicastery for Promoting Integral Human Development is organizing five video conferences on the theme: “Accompanying Health Care Workers in the Context of the Covid-19 Pandemic” to be held on 8, 9 and 10 June 2021. 

The Video conferences will help participants understand the impact of the pandemic on health care workers and all those involved in the network of care and assistance. We will listen to their testimonies, share experiences and seek to respond to an important question on: how can we accompany health and pastoral workers involved on the front lines of the pandemic?

The five conferences are organized according to regions and time zones (Europe, USA & Canada, Africa & Middle East, Asia & Oceania and Latin America). The Schedule of the Conferences is as follows:
