“The PRC’s Global Health in Focus project focuses on three of the greatest health challenges the world community faces today: HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, and access to clean water. This project aims to educate our New England community about these critical global health issues, utilizing documentary photography to offer direct insight into the individuals and communities affected. The panel discussion, along with the exhibition, will lead to a greater understanding of the challenges and possible solutions to global health problems, particularly the work of Boston-based institutions.

The overarching goal of “Why Global Health Matters” is to bridge the arts, journalism, and medical communities by analyzing the ongoing universal concerns communicated in the exhibition and publication. By organizing and presenting this project, the PRC serves as a resource not only for photographers but for professionals in the healthcare, human rights, and public policy fields, as well as demonstrating the power of the photographic image.”

This panel is being presented in conjunction the exhibition Global Health in Focus, with work by Kristen Ashburn, Dominc Chavez, and David Rochkind.  The exhibition will be on view February 9th to March 24th at the PRC.
