About this training module

Sharing and learning from our failures in global health programs can enhance problem-solving, encourage innovations, and improve quality of care.

Learning from our professional failures can help us avoid repeating past mistakes in our future work, and sharing our failure experiences with others can help them avoid making the same missteps. Global health professionals often share their successes but are less likely to share their failures, especially with other projects and organizations. This module shares some of the key barriers standing in the way of global health professionals from sharing their failures and ways to address those barriers. Normalizing sharing our failures (as well as our successes) will help us improve and strengthen our health and development programs.
