Malaria is one of the great scourges of mankind.

In 2011 and 2012, I traveled the world in cooperation with Novartis to document the impact that malaria has on people — and to show that,with the right combination of know how, technology, resources, and collaboration, malaria can be beaten.

Through my photographs I witnessed the amazing story of the Novartis Malaria Initiative.

This massive program has delivered 600 million antimalarial treatments to adults and children in malari-infested regions across three continents

The following link will take you on a remarkable journey, from the creation of the antimalarial active ingredients in China,
to the treatment of malaria patients in Africa and Asia.

I hope you enjoy traveling with me on this journey.

Focusing on the effects

MothrChldWomensTrust, a microfinance operation founded by Dana Dakin, afforded me the opportunity to document their inspiring work , capture the visible effects of their effort, and share it with the world.

The photographic essay that I created and produced captures my visual impressions of the results of WomensTrust investment in the community of Pokuase. The images attempt to tell a story that transitions between the harsh reality of poverty to the far horizons of hope. The images, taken throughout Ghana, are my attempt to illustrate an environment of pervasive poverty and  the heart and soul of opportunity.

We have assembled a book documenting the results of the WomensTrust initiative and it is available for purchase. To learn more, contact Mark Tuschman.
