The WHO film: Changemakers in Health: Learning from stories of transformation weaves together stories from individuals and groups in health intentionally leading change. It reveals some of the many ways that these changemakers have managed to significantly impact their health care environments and improve health outcomes, often through relatively small, local interventions. From improving patient safety and reducing patient harm, to promoting community health and introducing compassion in health leadership - these stories offer insights into how change can be ignited from the inside out, by anyone at any level of a health system. The call to action is that change can be triggered by anyone, at any level of a health system. The message for policy makers, funders and researchers is to connect our head and heart and invest in solutions developed by people and for people.
