Why Global Health Photography?
As our world becomes increasingly connected, there is a growing realization that public health challenges are global. Disease doesn’t respect international borders. Poverty doesn’t simply diminish the lives of citizens of underdeveloped nations. In a globally connected world, poverty and disease and underdevelopment threaten us all.
The global health revolution is fueled by that fundamental realization. Global public health needs are being defined and prioritized, resources are being acquired and dedicated, and lives are being reclaimed and restored.
Public Health: An Immense Challenge Ahead
But the challenges are immense. Improving lives on this vast scale takes tremendous amounts of time, money and persuasive skill. Stakeholders need to be informed. Impact statements prepared and approved. Presentations made, capital raised.
In short, compelling stories need to be told and retold, until that politician, that software developer, that banker, that grant administrator, that senator, that global health care researcher, that individual donor — until all of them are nodding their collective heads, gathering together, targeting the challenges, and saving lives.
Global Health Photo was founded for this purpose:
To provide private and public sector organizations with the documentary photographic resources necessary to communicate complex, large-scale stories in support of the global health revolution.
