Malaria: Blood, Sweat and Tears: Exhibition at the Global Health Odyssey Museum

3 February 2011
London, 3 February 2011: Malaria Consortium and Adam Nadel's photographic exhibition, Malaria: Blood, Sweat and Tears, is currently on show at the Global Health Odyssey Museum in Atlanta until 20th May 2011.  

We are thrilled that the exhibition, conceived and produced by Malaria Consortium and the award-winning photographer Adam Nadel, will be open to the public at the CDC museum. Malaria: blood, sweat and tears was developed in the hope of showing a wide audience the devastating impact of malaria on communities, the history of the disease, and the science that underpins a positive way forward.

The exhibition, with the support of Vestergaard Frandsen and in cooperation with the Roll Back Malaria Partnership, opened at the United Nations' main gallery in spring 2010. According to UN Gallery Manager it was one of the most successful exhibitions they have hosted with an estimated 100,000 people viewing the photographs and associated information. It aimed to showcase the complex relationships between malaria, poverty and the need for international support to combat the disease on a large scale.

Adam Nadel will also be discussing his work at the CDC museum for a special event alongside CDC malaria experts who will be answering attendee's questions.

We hope the exhibition will be highly successful and believe it will continue to have a huge impact on promoting the importance of sustainable malaria control efforts.

Malaria: blood, sweat, and tears is a Malaria Consortium exhibit sponsored in Atlanta by the Global Health Odyssey Museum, Division of Community Engagement, Office of the Associate Director for Communication.

The CDC Foundation acknowledges the generous gift of Vestergaard Frandsen, in support of the
Global Health Odyssey Museum and the Malaria: blood, sweat and tears exhibition in Atlanta.
