London, 22 February: Elements of a malaria focused photo exhibition were showcased and previewed in yesterday’s ‘Week in Review’ section of the Sunday edition of the New York Times.
Malaria Consortium, the Roll Back Malaria Partnership and Vestergaard Frandsen S.A. worked in partnership to support the creation of this moving and powerful exhibition by renowned photographer Adam Nadel.

Mr Nadel traveled to a number of malaria endemic countries recently, including Nigeria, Uganda and Cambodia, building up a poignant portfolio of images for the exhibition. The collection will educate the viewer on the devastating impact of malaria on communities, the history of the disease, and the science that underpins a positive way forward. The images provide highly personal stories of the physical, emotional, economic and scientific spectrum of malaria, illustrating the impact of the disease on families, health workers, malaria researchers and local communities.
The photo exhibition will be on display to the public at the Secretariat Gallery of the United Nation’s Headquarters in New York from 15 March to early May. An official reception for the exhibition will be held in April to mark and celebrate World Malaria Day.
