An international multimedia campaign is being launched this week to draw attention to the growing problem of drug resistant tuberculosis.
Centred on the work of the Pulitzer prize winning photojournalist James Nachtwey, and funded by an award from the annual “Technology, Entertainment, Design” conference (www.ted.com), the campaign is being launched simultaneously on 3 October in public spaces on seven continents, from Times Square in New York to Antarctica. In London the pictures are being projected onto the flytower of the National Theatre and also feature in a static exhibition, entitled The Emergency Room, in Bethnal Green, east London.
