Abstract
More than a concept, Cultural Humility is a process of communal reflection to analyze the root causes of suffering and create a broader, more inclusive view of the world. Originally developed by Doctors Melanie Tervalon and Jann Murray-Garcia (1998) to address health disparities and institutional inequities in medicine, Cultural Humility is now used in public health, social work, education, and non-profit management. It is a daily practice for people who deal with hierarchical relationships, changing organizational policy and building relationships based on trust. Audiences who might find this documentary helpful include professionals, students, providers, organizers and policy makers in public health, social work, medicine, psychology, nursing, education and more.

Available in all official WHO languages (Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Russian and Spanish), this publication describes how people live with their health condition. It is a classification of health-related domains that describe body functions and structures, activities and participation. The domains are classified from body, individual and societal perspectives. Since an individual's functioning and disability occurs in a context, "ICF" also includes a list of environmental factors. The "ICF" should be useful to understand and measure health outcomes. It can be used in clinical settings, health services or surveys at the individual or population level.
